New experimental storage system

Dear cluster users,

due to the recent performance problems with the storage system, we are currently testing a distributed file system for user data storage. Please note that the nodes c2-0 to c2-4 are now used as storage servers.

I moved all user data to a new storage. There should be no changes for you, except that the current experimental storage system does NOT provide any redundancy whatsoever and WILL loose all data in case of a hardware failure. As before, it is YOUR obligation to back up any data
that is critical to you.

I hope the dreadful performance of majorana will improve with the new system.

If you experience any problems with the new distributed storage system or have any questions, feel free to contact me. If you do not have any questions, feel free to buy me a beer.
