Out of pure curiosity, does anyone care to share experiences from 
running OpenAFS on ZFS?

If any one is running OpenAFS on top of or in a cluster which also uses 
Ceph, would you care to share experience, as well as your architecture?

Background:  I have 4 Thumpers (SunFire x4500s) with 48tb a pop and am 
wondering how best to set up my storage layer.  This cluster will both 
serve user files and be the backend for a VM cluster.
