My first tests show that replicated volumes are still accessible when one node
is shut down hard or slow. And the changes are replicated back when the failed
node reappears. If you mount it via glusterfs, the hostname is only used
during mount to fetch the meta-data. With nfs-mount the mount only runs on
when the mounted node runs. Of course trying to use a shut-down node doesn't
work on either nfs nor glusterfs...
