A collie? I'm thinking he's wondering where the sheep are. You should
think about buying some chickens for him to herd.

I think Lustre will be ok. Oracle does have OCFS, but I've never used it
and nobody has mentioned it, so it might still be in gestation. Sun has
some interesting assets in virtualization. I want to see where Oracle
goes with that.
