[OpenAFS] Implementing massive storage
Sat, 11 Nov 2006 13:59:18 -0500
You may know this already, but just for the record serving files by AFS
means NOT serving them by these other means. AFS's server structure
dictates that. In the situation you describe, the only likely option
is to export luns via FC or iscsi to your afs fileservers, and have them
serve AFS as normal.
You can mix serving the same set of files by NFS and CIFS, and you can
mix serving raw block devices by iscsi & fibre channel, and AFS will
have to be a separate category.
