ZFS Clusters?

Is it possible to create a ZFS cluster? Or would you need to go the seemingly ugly (to me at least) route of ZFS with UFS formatted pools governed by GlusterFS?

The Idea is to see if its possible to expand to Multi-Petabyte distributed store which ZFS should be able to handle without a hiccup.

Any pointers, blogs, posts?

ZFS is not a clustered filesystem, so a ZFS POOL ca be accessible on one host only.

But You can put any other clustered filesystem over ZFS, by using the ZFS zvol.


clustering, distributed, freebsd, zfs
