[Gluster-users] GLUSTERFS + ZFS ON LINUX

  May be this question would have been addressed elsewhere but I did like
the opinion and experience of other users.

There could be some misconceptions that I might be carrying, so please be
kind to point them out. Any help, advice and suggestions will be very highly

My goal is to get a greater than 100 TB gluster NAS up on the cloud. Each
server will hold around 2x8TB disks. The export volume size (client disk
mount size) would be greater than 20 TB.

This is how I am planning to set it up all.. 16 servers each with 2x8=16 TB
of space. The glusterfs will be replicate and distributed (raid-10). I did
like to go with ZFS on linux for the disks.
The client machines will use the glusterfs client for mounting the volumes.

ext4 is limited to 16 TB due to userspace tool (e2fsprogs).

Would this be considered as a production ready setup? The data housed on
this cluster will is critical and hence I need to very sure before I go
ahead with this kind of a setup.

Or would using ZFS with Gluster makes more sense on FreeBSD or illuminos
(ZFS is native there).

Thanks a lot
