Hi, 
 
I would like to implement glusterfs 3.1 in my concern.We have around 10
servers and all are holding diff applications such as 
webserver(apache,Tomcat),vmware,DNS server....all the servers are
having Diff disk capacity such as 1 TB,2 TB like that.All the systems
are having Ubuntu 10.04 
 
My Requirement:  
 
1.Need to connect all the servers through glusterfs 3.1.x 
2.If i configured as Replication method, i am not getting Disk
space.So i need to configure as like striping method.but glusterfs 
doesn't provide, fail over for this. 
3.for e.x if i take 
server1:/data(120GB),server2:/data(120GB),
server3:/home/g1=2TB,server4:/home/g2=2TB......

i want to connect all the servers.so that i can get big 
storage space for all.
if i go for striping or distributed, 
if one server fails, i can't access the volume 
and get an error as "Transport end point not connected" 
 
Please let me know the solution and idea for config for this.
i am searching in google for the past 10 days but no proper result. 
 
Regards, 
Varadharajan.
