nice graph.  but how does it look if you compare a single glusterfs 
brick with a single NFS brick?

> The next release (1.3-BENKI) will have further enhancements such as
> "ib-verbs", Infiniband RDMA transport, asynchronous I/O and epoll
> leading to much lower latency and more POSIX correctness.

but the page only mentions bandwidth; in what cases does the latency
matter so much?
