I would like all the KVM VMs hosted on the SAN with the ability to add more SAN servers in the future. – Currently Gluster allows this via NFS but I’ve read about performance issues. – So, right now, after 2 years of not deploying this gear (and running the VMs images on each blade), am looking for an expandable solution for the backend storage so I stop manually babying this network and install OpenNebula so I’m not the only person in our office who can manage our VM infrastructure.

Hola JM,

are you aware that your above message has neither arrived at my side through the list, nor through personal mail.
Does this mean I got deleted from the list by you?
