[Gluster-users] Gluster in a cluster

I have worked with NPACI and Platform rocks somet and it is typical to have
nodes reinstall when they fail to boot, but your configuration seems to
reinstall on any reboot. Have you worked with the rocks community to modify
your configuration?

Did you create a new appliance type for your storage nodes? How do you
distinguish your storage nodes from your compute nodes? Is it possible that
you might be able to maintain the storage nodes distinctly from your
cluster and then add a script for mounting the volumes to your config.xml?
