Why file based load balancing?

Many systems with multiple nodes divide a file in blocks to spread over the nodes to balance the bandwidth. In that case all data must be present in the desktop before a file can be used. AVFS keeps a file within a Data Location boundary and a node can have multiple Data Locations. So also smaller AVFS setups can still benefit from load balancing. And to scale out storage nodes of different brands, capacities and manufacturing dates can be added.
