> I use GlusterFS with Dovecot and it works without issues. The GlusterFS team has made huge progress since 2.0 and with the new 3.0 version they have again proved that GlusterFS can get better.

You have kindly shared some details of your config before - care to 
update us on what you are using now, how much storage, how many 
deliveries/hour, IOPS, etc?  Lots of stuff was quite hard work for you 
back with Glusterfs v2, what kind of stuff did you need to work around 
with v3? (I can't believe it worked out of the box!)  Any notes for 
users with small office sized setups (ie 2 servers' ish).

I presume you use gentoo on your gluster machines? Do you run gluster 
only on the storage machines or do you virtualise and use the spare CPU 
to run other services? (given the price of electricity it seems a shame 
not to load servers up these days...)
