I am considering building a pair of storage servers that will be using
CentOS and GFS to share the storage from a Coraid (SATA+Raid) EtherDrive
shelf. Has anyone else tried such a setup?
Is GFS stable enough to use in a production environment?
There is a build of GFS 6.1 at http://rpm.karan.org/el4/csgfs/. Has anyone
used this? Is it stable?
Will I run into any problems if I use CentOS 3.5 with it's GFS package to
access a shared 5TB filesystem?
I've been googling on this stuff off and on for a month now. I've found a
bunch of conflicting and confusing information, but no clear answers. I've
been kind of hoping that the new GFS 6.1 packages would be released while I
was waiting... :)
I appreciate any suggestions or pointers.
