Hello everybody,

I am using GlusterFS since a few weeks. Surfing the net I stumbled into this:


I am wondering if it would be a good idea to make a xlator for GlusterFS using 
this algorithm.

The advantage of this solution is that you can split a file in N size blocks, 
and spread them around the bricks. If you lose one brick, you can still 
reconstruct files combining the remaining blocks. It's also quite efficient.

Kind regards to everybody and compliments for the great job already done!
