nckx_ is now known as nckx
I think it would be neat if the database and /gnu/store could be split up and spread over different hosts.
I’m thinking of container / cloud stuff again.
the shared /gnu/store as a cache and shared file system underlying a fleet of containers is a real asset, in my opinion.
on a single host we don’t care about /gnu/store being tied to a single machine
but if we want to run a lot of containers that are backed by /gnu/store we need to share /gnu/store among different hosts
I wonder if we can take advantage of the properties of /gnu/store to come up with a more performant way of sharing it among hosts, better than NFS
i would certainly take that
i loathe kubernetes
I know samba has some async options, does NFS have something similar?
efraim goes off to research
probably caching would be easier, because the dependencies are static, so you don't have to worry about the data becoming stale
also maybe locking wouldn't be an issue
