Mogilefs is interesting, but has a few disadvantages that make it unsuited for Wikimedia:

  • It has no support for multiple datacenters
  • It's written in Perl (slow)
  • It's badly documented
  • It uses an in-memory database (mysql-cluster), which means that it requires a lot of memory with large amounts of objects
