You could mount toaster's partition on head node using iscsi.
Run glusterfs server on head node exporting the two partitions.
Run glusterfs client on the researcher's nodes.

> 2. The toaster exports 2.1 and 5.1 TB volumes served over NFSv3 (ouch..)

> 3. The last part is the tricky part that I still have to figure out:
> have the researchers be able to be gluster clients of this volume
> without exposing the private network to the faculty network (I don't
