Hi Thomas,

Yes, I meant PVFS: the parallel virtual file system. Sorry for
misspelling. Most of my knowledge of beowulf acronyms came from recent
telephone conversations with salespeople and beowulf engineers.

But what are your interesting findings? What did you compare and which
system is better in terms of ease of use and maintenance, reliability and
speed?

Ivan
