Speaking of it, does any of you know if any of these file systems are reliable against failure of a single (or a few nodes) out of say 150?

How about automatic rebuild and such things?

I'd like to gather any information possible since we're in the process of building a cluster with ~ 150 nodes and about 100-140 GB/node of 'free' hard drive space.
