The comment was geared towards the ext3+nfs performance question because it is likely that xfs+nfs can meet the required bandwidth.
Gfs is a good tool for increasing resiliency but not for increasing throughput (yet).

XFS is not a cluster filesystem - unless you're going to pay for CXFS
which is not open source. And be aware that each filesystem has its own
strength and weakness. Adding different run time system configurations,
when unexpected problems occur, collaborate efforts to trouble-shoot
and/or improve the issues are the vital steps to make open source
projects work, IMHO.
As usual, above are my personal opinions - it is not necessarily my
management team's position.
