Yes, we've been using Glusterfs on one of our lightly used Infiniband 
clusters (32-nodes, 256 cores). We have found it to be pretty easy to 
configure and we have liked its performance. If you want more 
information, you should e-mail Joe Landman, who is also on the list. 
He's used it in several large setups.
