[OpenIndiana-discuss] fault-tolerant distributed file systems

I am looking for a fault-tolerant distributed file system to store
medium sized files (150MB-4GB) which can scale across 100s of servers
and keep N replicas of each file.

MooseFS looks interesting, but I don't like the single point of
failure of the master server.  The development on that project seems
to have stagnated a bit as well, though the forums are active.  It
does to replication logs to other servers, but I need to build an HA
active/passive cluster.  It seems there isn't anything on OI right now
that can do clustering.

GlusterFS does not have an OI client (just server support).

What else are people using?
