If you are looking at serving static files via web, you might be interested
in mod_glusterfs (available in the glusterfs--mainline--3.0 branch).
mod_glusterfs is currently available for apache-1.3, lighttpd-1.4 and
lighttpd-1.5 (we are working on apache2 support).

http benchmarks show mod_glusterfs boosts the performance significantly,
especially for small files (by avoiding the fuse context switch overhead)
