[Gluster-users] Export Gluster backed volume with standard NFS

Hey everyone,

I currently have an NFS server that I need to make highly available.  I was thinking I would use Gluster, but since there's no way to match Gluster's built in NFS server to my current NFS exports file I can't use the Gluster NFS server.  So I was thinking I could have two bricks running replicated Gluster volumes, have them mount the Gluster volume from themselves with the FUSE client which would give them automatic failover, and then use standard NFS to re-export the mounts I need.  Is anyone already doing that or anything like it?  Any problems or performance issues?
