The objective is to be able to export data from the OpenSSI cluster to
machines not in the cluster. If all I wanted to do was export data, I
probably wouldn't build an OpenSSI cluster to do it (although you can
get HA-NFS using OpenSSI).
Haven't done any performance tests on using OpenSSI as an NFS server but
in general I wouldn't expect it to perform any better than a single NFS
server. The exception might be if you export filesystems physically
stored on other nodes in the cluster (but then they could have exported
independently if they were just running as a single NFS server).
