interesting. it mentions mirroring...but clustering? as in, having a unique ( 
or several) namespaces that, when addressed, allow you to access any of the 
nodes that provide storage? 

Gluster seems more interesting (to me :) )... how well it works, and whether on 
FBSD, i haven't looked into yet.

yeah, i been skimming over hadoop and it seems too much sometimes. I don't 
particularly like to have to deal with a RDBMs as well as all the other 
stuff... SUN's QFS (i think it's called that) , Luster , MogileFS (perl?) and 
others also rely on DBs...
