Wensong talked about having done it a few years back. I assume it was a test
setup only. There's none in production AFAIK. Distributed file systems
are still research topics. In the beowulf mailing list, only PVFS is being
used and not all that much (it's fragile, if one node goes down, you
loose the whole FS - this doesn't matter a whole lot to beowulfers).

rsync is used often for LVS's and seems to be the way to go.
