Best Practice for Distributed TREX NFS vs cluster file systems


We are planning to implement a distributed TREX, using RedHat on X64, but we are wondering which could be the best practice or approach to configure the "file server" used on the TREX distributed environment. The guides mention file server, that seems to be another server connected to a SAN exporting or sharing the file systems required to be mounted in all the TREX systems (Master, Backup and Slaves), but we know that the BI accelerator uses OCFS2 (cluster file systems) to access the storage, in the case of RedHat we have GFS or even OCFS.

Basically we would like to know which is the best practice and how other companies are doing it, for a TREX distributed environment using either network file systems or cluster file systems.

Thanks in advance,
