Subject Re: Shared block storage via ZooKepper

assuming you use option 3) bookkeeper, the following is probably way
too over-simplified, but
that's the idea:

all writers write to Bookkeeper ledger, and each of your actual
datastore nodes keeps reading the ledger, each record would be the
serialized form of a DB write op,
and when the ledger reader reads out the record, it deserializes it,
and applies it to the datastore it has, for example, just a mysql, or
bdb, or something like the LSM tree used by Cassandra

reads to the store directly go to the data store nodes themselves.

would this work? that does not sound a lot of work
