      We have data coming in on multiple nodes (with local storage) that is

      to do that with NFS would be with a matrix of cross mounts that would be 
truly scary.

Ignoring lame NFS clients, how is that architecture different than what you

with any other distributed file system? If all nodes share data to all other 
nodes, then...?

Simple. With a distributed FS, all nodes mount from a single DFS. With NFS, each node would have to mount from each other node. With 16 nodes, that's what, 240 mounts? Not to mention your data is in 16 different mounts/directory structures, instead of being in a unified filespace.
