We are in the process of planning to migrate off of NetApps onto Nimble Arrays.
One bit of functionality that NetApp has the Nimble does not is the ability to share a volume natives as an NFS volume - that is, the volume can be shared directly from the array as an NFS/CIFS share without having to mount it on a client somewhere. We're actually fine without this functionality built in to Nimble.
We do need some sort of solution for NFS that's scalable, fault-tolerant, and widely distributable. One solution we're looking at is GlusterFS; this is complex to set up but it seems doable.
I wanted to ask, though: What are y'all doing for NFS shares of Nimble volumes to multiple Linux hosts? What solutions have you engineered?
We'd prefer open-source solutions but are open to anything.
