- GlusterFS will be better if you want to do directory operations, and want
a "real" filesystem (i.e. where you can grep stuff, edit files, have
consistency gaurantees etc... and swift will be better for pure scale (less
need to worry about metadata == easier to scale on commodity hardware.

- Certainly both glusterFS and swift would scale to petabytes (object
stores are built for that sort of thing, as is gluster).
