While you're listing alternatives, the web 2.0 space has a bunch of
parallel FSes which don't seem to get much notice in HPC. An example
would be HDFS, the Hadoop Distributed FS. It's basically PVFS, but
with data redundancy and metadata redundancy actually implemented. It
lacks a POSIX interface, though.

A similar situation exists in the node management space, where
existing solutions like CFengine were pretty much ignored by HPC
