There is a reason why one would switch from NFS to GlusterFS, and mostly it is
redundancy. If you start using a NFS-client type you cut yourself off the
"complete solution". As said elsewhere you can as well export GlusterFS via
kernel-nfs-server. But honestly, it is a patch. It would be better by far if
things are done right, native glusterfs client in kernel-space.
And remember, generally there should be no big difference between NFS and
GlusterFS with bricks spread over several networks - if it is done how it
should be, without userspace.
