ubuntu:14.04-based MooseFS chunkserver instance
MooseFS is a distributed, fault-tolerant filesystem, you can use many computers together to hold a lot of data and present it to users as a single filesystem on Unix/Linux/Mac OS X.
mfschunkserver is the program that allows a computer to hold some of that data. For more info see http://moosefs.com.
I have started experimenting with Docker > mfschunkserver in order to improve response time to problems with a chunkserver. If a chunkserver's OS goes wonky, I need to be able to bring it back to life as quickly as possible; now that we have Docker, it's a case of re-installing the OS onto the hardware, installing docker, and pulling the image. This removes the bit in the middle where I'm fiddling about with *.cfg files, and generally improves robustness.
