thank you, i am looking forward to hear about this topic
i have actualy built my own cluster using some SP-SSD's and Eg-SSD's with an
HG as a net disk,

Love it!

I am still waiting for some new stuff such as floating IPs ( IP-loadbalance for VPS )

keep em coming , and no NFS.. but ISCSI ! which can be attaced to actually any distro/OS , while NFS + windows = fail :< .. ( on production )

How about iscsi ?
I prefer it as a storage solution for SSD servers that needs space...

also iscsi is quite fast
[root@slayer ~]# time dumpe2fs /dev/sdc1 | head
dumpe2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006)

Last mounted on:
Filesystem UUID: 5683b36b-59b3-4b6a-9422-f0eb60a70992
Filesystem magic number: 0xEF53
Filesystem revision #: 1 (dynamic)
Filesystem features: has_journal ext_attr resize_inode dir_index filetype needs_recovery sparse_super large_file
Default mount options: (none)
Filesystem state: clean
Errors behavior: Continue
Filesystem OS type: Linux

real 0m0.016s
user 0m0.006s
sys 0m0.012s

what would be the preformance of NFS?

my target is on RBX-2 , my webserver is on RBX-3 , you can see the stats on top ^

will you provide the network solution within the same DC as the actual end client? or is it a single location which will work across the ovh LAN ?
