I'm not going to take a side on this one since they are in many respects 
solving different problems in different domains, but to add something to 
an otherwise broad statement some of the collaborators I work with at 
CMU and used to work with at ANL put out a decent publication on this 
topic back in 2011.  A worthwhile read for anybody who is interested in 
comparing the two purpose-built file-systems.

"On the Duality of Data-intensive File System Design:
Reconciling HDFS and PVFS"
