iSCSI vs. distributed filesystems
i tried Googling for answer, but surprisingly found no hits.
What are the advantages/disadvantages of using an iSCSI RAID1 configuration -- with one local and one remote, or possibly N remote mirrors -- as opposed to using CODA, GFS, etc?
i guess one distinction is that iSCSI works at block level, and other distributed filesystems work at file level...but how does that pan out in real life? Is one necessarily faster than the other?
