Having had the misfortune of being involved in a cluster which used
GPFS, I can attest that GPFS is anything but "robust" and "fault
tolerant" in my experience.  Granted this was a few years ago, and
things may have improved, but that one horrible experience was 
sufficient to make me avoid GPFS for life.
