[linux-elitists] network filesystem (not Samba nor NFS)

Hi,
I will implement the GFS
(http://www.cs.rochester.edu/sosp2003/papers/p125-ghemawat.pdf) but
until I save enough money to stay at home writing it, and assuming
Google will not open-source soon, I'll try some alternative.

The objective is to cut off the use of a central NFS based fileserver
(an appliance) to avoid the headaches when it breaks down.

After some research it seems that the only useable networked filesystem
is AFS (openafs.org)

Any good/bad experience with this? with other?
