I have been playing with glusterfs recently.
What I want to try is to run mysqld on top of the glusterfs in a similar way as it is possible to run MySQL on top of DRBD.
I am familiar with MySQL replication and the advantages of using that instead of this approach and I am also aware of MongoDB and other NoSQL solutions.
However, it would be an easy solution to a few specific projects I have coming up if I could leave MySQL as it is and replicate the underlying file system.
Is this possible and if it is where can I find out how?
