Subject Re: pnfs support?

pNFS is NFS v4.1 with a the ability to have the head end paralleled and HA, but you’re still
reliant on the backend doing any sort of replication. Adding support the cloudstack way would
be trivial if it was just verified the client supported it on the hypervisor, and even then
the deployments I’ve seen would still allow failover to NFS v3

For the most part, people seem to be waiting for CephFS to become primetime, but if you’re
using the big NFS hardware solutions, I think most support pNFS now.

I’ve personally used pNFS with <>
as the NFS server and Ceph as the backend, but that felt kind of dirty and will be less useful
for most when CephFS goes primetime.
