Using MySQL as a filesystem

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on February 19, 2008 07:47 PM
My primary question is does it allow being mounted from multiple machines? If it were somehow cluster aware, this could be very useful when you had say, 30-40 nodes running a webapp all needing access to the same files. Currently, we've got one client who is utilizing ocfs2 and a fiber channel SAN for their web files, however, this could be greatly improved if it could be done with a MySQL backend, with each of the web nodes running a slave server, so the changes were replicated locally.
