Ok.  I can see that.

Let's say that I take a slightly looser approach to high-availability:
- keep the static parts of my installs on local disk
- share and replicate dynamic data using gluster
- failover by rebooting on a different node (no image to worry about 

In this scenario, how well does gluster work when:
- storage and processing are inter-mixed on the same nodes
- data is triply replicated (allow for 2-node failures)

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
