It would do with drbd in multi master mode. But what about, you need a third
and so on DC then you should choose glusterfs.
DRBD only can do 2 bricks. Gluster as you like.

Just trying to get all the options before we go much further.

We already have 2 replicating DC's with the file server on DC1. Would it be
possible to use drdb here by putting the fileserver data on a separate
partition and syncing that to DC2? Or how about a third box drbd'd to DC1
mirroring the data partition and setting up that as a fileserver too?
