You can't have redundant paths with NFS (in FreeBSD), though. I'm not so
sure everyone would agree that NFS is mature and stable, either :-)

My personal experience with building a Xen+FreeBSD cluster concluded
that NFS was far too slow and unreliable, and a properly configured
iSCSI with multiple paths and proper alignment was extremely fast.
