I've a Linux cluster which is mainly for web and mail, 
all the web and configuration files are stored on coda, mail is dumped inside 
a database.
Mail system: PgSQL+PgReplicator + dbmail + postfix 
It's fast and it's always in sync, about 70% of the whole workload is done by the Database
a small chunk is done by Coda.

to be honest, coda is something brilliant, havent had any faults or etc etc kinda
