True, although the user access should only be for sgm users and ideally only to the tag directories, and the load should be pretty low - even atlas probably doesn't add more than about one tag a day! And if anything that would be a case for splitting the gridftp server onto a different node - there's no necessary connection between it and the publisher, as long as the tags are shared.
