[Gluster-users] Mounting Gluster volume on multiple clients.

We will not have a situation where we need to access the same file from different clients.
We are looking for a web application which will be deployed on 2 servers. Both these servers will mount the gluster volume and this mount point will act as the data directory for the applications.
The users will login to the load balanced application servers and the application creates separate folders for each user.

My doubt is if multiple users login to both the application servers and read/ write data. Will thus effect any synchronisation of data between the underlying bricks.

Just as if you had multiple applications using the same file on a local filesystem, you'll want to make sure your application uses standard POSIX locking.

What are the considerations to be kept if we want to mount the same gluster volume on multiple clients so they can access the same data. ? Is this possible and will it create any issues ?

Please advise. !!
