It seems you want something more like Lustre (http://www.lustre.org/):

	"The central target in this project is the development of Lustre, a
	next-generation cluster file system which can serve clusters with
	10,000's of nodes, petabytes of storage, move 100's of GB/sec with
	state of the art security and management infrastructure."
