Could you elaborate on that? Although at the moment I don't appear to
have a need for ACL on the storage, it is always good to be aware of
any potential pitfalls.

Thanks for the confirmation :)

Also just for the benefit of whoever else in the future looking at the archives
Just found this link which seems to confirm that Gluster can be used
to share active/active failover storage to multiple machines by
running it on the machines themselves and gives the steps/command to
do it on cloud VM.
