There are many options for a new Gluster volume, like Lindsay
And there are other options, like Ceph, OrangeFS.
How do you want to use the JBODs? I dont think you would use every
single drive as a brick... How are these connected to the servers?

Im only dealing with about 10TiB Gluster volumes, so by far not at your
planned level, but I really would like to see some results, if you go
for Gluster!
