I'm setting up some web servers on Google Cloud Compute and I need a directory synced between all the servers to keep the web sites in sync. I'd also like to use the autoscaling feature to provision new servers when needed.
I realise GlusterFS would need to know about all instances but my idea would be to setup monitoring from each server and on new/removed server events auto update the configs. (havent tried this yet though)
Has anyone had experience with either of these systems? If so, how did maintaining either go, and what costs are involved, as I'm not sure if GlusterFS would cost any extra other than the drives it's on, while Google Cloud Storage FS costs for the storage plus for the api commands it runs.
