I run Replica 3 VM hosting (gfapi) via a 3 node proxmox cluster. Have 
done a lot of rolling node updates, power failures etc, never had a 
problem. Performance is better than any other DFS I've tried (Ceph, 
lizard/moose). Never did get DRDB working.

nb: ZFS Bricks, with each brick RAID10 - so a little paranoid on the 
redundancy :)

For me, glusters biggest problem is its lack of flexibility in adding 
bricks and nodes.
