I just looked at GlusterFS and VastSky - these seems to be aimed at aggregating storage located across different servers. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this seems to me the opposite of what you are looking for: you want HA, so data needs to be replicated to be available via different servers, right?

- 16 disks spread across 4 servers -> one storage pool
- files, logical volumes, VM images, etc. available from any server (e.g., via a cluster FS) - replicate data across servers/drives to insulate from disk/server failures (ideal, survive 2 node outage)
- auto-migrate VMs (and associated IP addresses) on node failure

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
