Hi Strahil,

Just went through the Gluster Documentation again.
Both the two-way replication and the builtin NFS is deprecated.

Thanks for the pointer.

Hi Indivar,
You can do that , but is complicated.
First, I would recommend you to use either replica 3 or replica 3 arbiter 1  cluster volumes.
Second , you have  2 options  - to use  NFS provided by Cluster Cluster ,but this is deprecated and you will have to migrate from that option once it get's completely removed.
Third option is to use CTDB to fail over your floating VIP and to start NFS-Ganesha.
The benefit of using NFS-Ganesha is that it uses libgfapi and connects to all cluster nodes simultaneously providing accumulated performance.

Best Regards,
Strahil Nikolov
