I have the following questions abt using MogileFS,

1. Do you think MogileFS is suitable for the following uses?

a. Photo storage for online album
b. Email storage for email system
c. Cache storage (i.e. static HTML publishing, similar the one used in
MT, directly send the static HTML file to client rather than doing DB
query each time)

2. How scalable it is? Any real word examples, e.g. how many servers,
total storage size, etc.

3. What are the advantages in using MogileFS over GFS (Red Hat) or
Coda? (Besides they are difficult to setup).

Thanks for any comments.
