Hi Dave,

As someone wrote on the mailing list, we would be happy with a 
filesystem that would not be dedicated to oVirt only, and would not rely 
on oVirt only, but which could be easily used by oVirt (and managed, and 
monitored by a web tool).
Our main concern is not performance neither huge petabytes, but 
redundancy, geo replication and _reliability_.

We won't have more than 200 VM and not more than 32 hosts, and not more 
than 100 To of storage, but we would like to know how this could be 
replicated amongst, say, 6 sites.

We still have a long way to go.
