Joshua -
     There are pros and cons to server-side and client-side replication, 
it all depends on the specifics of each environment. With Gluster 3.1 
both methods work out of the box, for client side replication use the 
Gluster native client [1], for server side replication use a NFS client [2].

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Craig
