Well, I was suspecting something like this.
We’ve yet to make it production with the first GlusterFS customer - and then the ramp-up until it’s running their whole stuff will be very long.
But I think their dataset is pretty small anyway.
We don’t deal with a lot of data, usually.

From what I have read, GlusterFS does not work very well with lots of small files (as they would occur in a website-hosting environment, where GlusterFS would look like a logical choice).
Is that still the case?
