<rekado>I think it would be neat if the database and /gnu/store could be split up and spread over different hosts.
<rekado>I’m thinking of container / cloud stuff again.
<rekado>the shared /gnu/store as a cache and shared file system underlying a fleet of containers is a real asset, in my opinion.
<rekado>on a single host we don’t care about /gnu/store being tied to a single machine
<rekado>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
<rekado>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
<drakonis>i would certainly take that
<drakonis>i loathe kubernetes
<efraim>I know samba has some async options, does NFS have something similar?
*efraim goes off to research
<Gooberpatrol66>probably caching would be easier, because the dependencies are static, so you don't have to worry about the data becoming stale
<Gooberpatrol66>also maybe locking wouldn't be an issue
