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

On my compute cluster we use round-robin dns (for HA of the volume
definition) and mount the GlusterFS volume via the FUSE (native) client.
All of the I/O would go directly to the nodes, rather than through an
intermediary (NFS) server.
