Presumably something like or

Ok, I had found one of those links when doing a quick search but
assumed there was more to it. That looks like just a normal file
server to me.

but yeah there's certainly something to be said for keeping your work
database on a *local* fast, big, cheap, disk.

Hrm, or is it a *workspace* that's on that filer? That also sounds like
something that would be better on a local disk but I can imagine various
corporate policies that would require it be on the filer.

I can't imagine one that doesn't include some kind of petty "all your
data is belong to us" kind of policy. This defeats the purpose of a
distributed system by forcing you to put *all* of your files on a
central server...what a pain.
