[Gluster-users] Newbee Question: GlusterFS on Compute Cluster?

I've got a 24 node compute cluster.  Each node has one extra terabyte drive.  It seemed reasonable to install Gluster on each of the compute nodes and the head node.  I created a volume from the head node:

gluster volume create gv1 rep 2 transport tcp compute000:/export/brick1 compute001:/export/brick1 compute002:/export/brick1 compute003:/export/brick1 compute004:/export/brick1 compute005:/export/brick1 compute006:/export/brick1 compute007:/export/brick1 compute008:/export/brick1 compute009:/export/brick1 compute010:/export/brick1 compute011:/export/brick1 compute012:/export/brick1 compute013:/export/brick1 compute014:/export/brick1 compute015:/export/brick1 compute016:/export/brick1 compute017:/export/brick1 compute018:/export/brick1 compute019:/export/brick1 compute020:/export/brick1 compute021:/export/brick1 compute022:/export/brick1 compute023:/export/brick1

And then I mounted the volume on the head node.  So far, so good.  Apx. 10 TB available.

Now I would like each compute node to be able to access files on this volume.  Would this be done by NFS mount from the head node to the compute nodes or is there a better way?
