This way we do not need to replicate data across the nodes since the 2 servers see the same block storage and you have active failover on all the hardware. Dataon has a system for this and they even suggest using gluster however, I cannot seem to figure out how to implement this model. All gluster nodes would need to be active and there doesn't seem to be a master - slave failover model. Thoughts?

My first thought here would be to ask the Dataon guys what the architecture
for this should look like.  It sounds kinda weird/non-obvious to me, but
it's possible they've got it working nicely somehow. :)
