OK, ok, i surrender.
Read too fast the docs i found. XFS instead seems to be better.

But, even if i understand the mandatory drawbacks of a clustered FS
(ceph), i find the performance penalty to be huge :

According to http://www.sebastien-han.fr/blog/2012/08/26/ceph-benchmarks/
with the "Insane servers" (close to mine) and a dedicated 1G network
(mine will be 10gbe), the write bandwidth is between 110 and 150 MB/s.
It's not a shame, but with 64GB RAM, Raid of SSD and 32 Cores, you
could expect twice the bandwidth at least.

OK, for the redundant FS, but what a huge price i'd pay for..

Version: GnuPG v1
