Do you have any metrics to give an idea of the difference. I am using NFS right now, and I am migrating to Gluster. I have the gluster system up, and I see that it seems to provision disks faster than my NFS. I haven't used any real measurement tools to get actual metrics, this is all perceived.
Do you have an operational gluster? Do what are you using right now?

In some blog, it said, it is even with worse performance than normal NFS. Should I use iscsi+drbd for the block storage for VMs. Can somebody give some advice for this?
