This seems very interesting. I wonder if the right approach here is an alternate volume driver + boot from volume code. -Is someone actually wanting to work on this? -vish
Is there a Chef cookbook for installing GlusterFS?

Hi folks, I work for Gluster and we're really excited at the prospect of using Gluster for application volumes as well as VM storage. I will be working on integrating GlusterFS with openstack and would appreciate any help in this effort. Please feel free to contact me on IRC #openstack or email through my launchpad page, I aim to generate some discussion on how best such an integration can be performed. Thanks --Shehjar
