* Can we adapt it to a storage backend which
doesn't use a shared
filesystem? NFS servers are problematic, and we're planning to remove
them from the equation for uploaded media.
Out of curiosity, what's problematic about them, and what are the
better alternatives we're moving to?
Because if the server goes away you get stuck unkillable processes.
If you have cyclic NFS dependencies between systems it becomes
impossible to cleanly boot the environment.
NFS is great in the steady state, but during failure it tends to
trigger bad and unexpected behaviour in everything around it.
