      GlusterFS vs MooseFS opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      GlusterFS can not handle 200+ million files, but MooseFS can. GlusterFS has very poor performance with small files, and file/dir operations. GlusterFS can not handle replicas per directory inside FS. MooseFS can. And have so much other troubles with GlusterFS.
