[Gluster-users] Gluster to support scalable web site

so are you asking if gluster would do all the load balancing for you for
static content?   I bet it could if you created a volume with extremely
high replication.

This potentially similar to the idea of using a gluster distributed volume
to replace a distributed file cache.

Curious if anyone has tried this and the results are as good /comparable to
just manually replicating the files on normal disks.
