[Linux-cluster] Clustering storage using RHCS to store VMs



Hi all,

I need to setup a rhcs with two nodes to use it for delivery storage for vmware esxi 4 and rhel5.4 kvm hosts.

Which type of filesystem is best to use on this topology to serve it via NFS for esxi and rhel5.4 kvm hosts: gfs2 or ext4??

In the case of gfs2, is it a good idea to mount gfs2 filesystems with noatime,nodiratime and noquota options to use it with VMs??

An important point is the able to use thin provisioning feature incorporated in esxi 4. VMware documentation says that this feature it is delimited by the nfs server ... then, both (ext4 and gfs2) can do this??

Thanks.
