I've seen many tutorials recommending glusterfs for distributed web application hosting. Is this really the best practice for small scale load balancing?
It seems the latency issue is slowing us down when we test this. Right now we have three nodes, each running nginx. They are all glusterfs servers and have the file system mounted to /var/www. We don't mind having a copy of php files on all servers, but perhaps there is a better way to sync changes than gluster?
