High availability has a lot to do with how you design your
infrastructure.  If you only have one server, for example, that isn't
going to provide high availability no matter what the software can do.

If you need 100% uptime for particular critical services then design
around that requirement.  Multiple servers, with enough redundancy and
capability to migrate critical services (VMs whatever) so that they
always stay up.

Upgrade part of the Gluster infrastructure, then migrate your critical
items to the upgraded servers, then upgrade the rest, etc.

This is more of a design and administrative issue than a software issue,
