Rick - you can reach out to the folks at Panasas, which is a FreeBSD shop
with its own proprietary cluster file system that supports pNFS (via a
NFS-Ganesha layer) and its own pNFS pre-cursor.  That probably doesn't meet
your needs exactly, but technically it is a dead-on match for what you are
thinking about.  Try Celeste Baranski, cbaranski at panasas.com
