:That's good to know things are going so well. Got a question. If memory serves
:me right, initially there was also going to be a thing called ANVIL, I can't
:remember what it was supposed to do and whether its still in your design.
:Could you elaborate a little?
It's not really in the HAMMER design any more, primarily because HAMMER's
volume model seems to work fine as-is. Ultimately something like ANVIL
(a block storage manager) would prove beneficial to the project but it
would be treated as a separate project. HAMMER's redundancy model is
going to be baesd around replication and clustering.
