Nope, this is well understood and supported. It all amounts to getting
the Pacemaker configuration right, but DRBD-backed, tgt-based iSCSI
targets are perfectly capable of failover that is fully transparent to

That being said, of course nova-volume with RBD (RADOS block device)
would be another approach that may provide better reliability (more
replicas, where DRBD is limited to 2 -- 4 with some trickery), better
scaleout (seamless expansion and contraction of the storage space),
and better self-healing capabilities (automatic rebalancing if
individual replicas fail).

Hope this is useful.
