[Gluster-users] DRBD like performance?

I had the intention of using GlusterFS to replace DRBD to setup a 
clustered/redundant webserver but so far the performance is about 7-8x 
slower than native due to the live writing feature that GlusterFS uses.  
Is it possible to have a setup like DRBD to improve performance?

Basically I want to know if I can get the same functionality and 
performance of DRBD?  I have 2 servers and with DRBD each server would 
perform all reads locally (giving native performance) and does not write 
data until it is fully written locally (delayed write I guess you could 
say).  This way you get the replication but still get native performance.

Is there a current way to setup GlusterFS like this in order to get this 
'DRBD-like' functionality?
