In my case, as I want to avoid (if possible) to have a disk-serving 
cluster, this means accesing the local gluster volume via NFS.
Do you mean that this would be better than using Fuse ?

If I had to setup a failover disk cluster shared via NFS - that would 
mean handling IP failover using heartbeat (or something similar) - right ?

Thanks for the recommandation !
