First please appologize me in advance for any stupid things I may say :)

I am in the process of buinding a new webfarm for my company.
I don't know yet how we will store datas, Coda is an option (NFS / File
server is another , AFS another again)

1st question : is it reasonable to use coda in production environment with 2
file servers, serving to 12 (and more) web servers about 40 Gb of data
The data could be split in 4x10 gb if necessary

2nd question : to work on the website, our peoples work on a staging server
via FTP and once they are happy with the result deploy file / directories to
production environment.
We are curently using some custom programs to replicate the datas, could it
be possible to have that staging server have mounted with write perm the
coda web tree (like an NFS tree for example, without the neet to
authenticate every so often)
Regarding security, the coda servers are on a private network and the
staging server on another private network.
While looking at AFS, I was there was a pam module that could allow a user
(afs/system password being the same I suppose) to authenticate ...

Tia, Mathieu
