comment Linux stretch cluster: MD replication, DRBD or Veritas?
Since the OP mentioned "stretch cluster" rather than regular ha-clustering, seems he wants to protect against his SAN array going down as well, in which case he does need replication. That replication can of course be DIY with DRBD or similar, or some $$$ solution from the SAN array vendor.

No, gcc (a C compiler) is most certainly not part of the kernel.

comment Time sync in data center
@dbasnett: Yes, I know what stratum means. Which is why I wrote that in case one for some reason don't want to synchronize from some external NTP server(s), one can setup a stratum-0 source for internal use. The price for such a thing can vary from < $100 for a GPS receiver to, well, a lot for a high-precision atomic clock.

comment Linux: Why change inode size?
@FractalizeR. Yes, mke2fs on RHEL/CentOS 5 dates back to 2006. I think the default changed a few years ago, sometime when ext4 was declared stable maybe.
