I am using gluster in a minimal, non-replicated setup to replace nfsv4. 
I could not make nfsv4 work with gnome shell and firefox in Fedora 15 - 
it was trivial to freeze the nfs server and the client desktops. 
Switching to gluster fixed these issues for me. Gory details here:


I use the native gluster mount, called from /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

mount -t glusterfs /etc/glusterfs/glusterfs.vol /fileserver

Routine maintenance (upgrade from Fedora 15 to Fedora 16, for example, 
or testing new gluster server rpms, or debugging systemd issues).
