I known what you mean, it's really sounds cool, but for the sake of simplicity I think I'll stay with something like ChironFS (http://freshmeat.net/projects/chironfs/).

Whoa! Future looks bright
When someone hacks a "mount.pvfs" this will have more uses than just for PVM. This would be a good replacement for Storage Area Networks (SAN).

Imagine one or more linux frontends that load-balance TCP-sessions with RNAT/IP_ROUTE_MULTIPATH to a bunch of backends. The backends share vital data over PVFS.


Ie. one could build a load-balanced TCP/IP service with standard daemons, no need to buy or develop special SW.
