"The client system (Debian Lenny as well) will be able
to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is
a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes.
It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP
interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage
bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86-64 servers
with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA."
