[PVE-User] GlusterFS Questions

I'm playing around with GlusterFS and have a few questions. Have got a test
setup running on a 2 node cluster (using external USB Drives!) that works
surprisingly well :) and I must say it was very easy to setup.


1. I wanted to implement a distributed/replicated file system. Is GlusterFS
the best choice for a 2 node system? Would it be easy to add a third node
later?


2. When launching a VM off Node 1 or Node 2, is it accessing the local hard
disk directly, or does it all go through a network share? Our network is
only 1GB and it would be nice to take some of the load off it.


Should I be asking these question on the forum rather than the list?


Thanks,
