Another post here today got me thinking about a project a friend of mine asked me about...

Somewhat highly available system that will be I think a web server... He has 2 (and could get a 3rd) Intel NUC (nuc5ppyh I believe). Has low requirements and they have 250gb Ssd and 8gb.

How would you make a cluster and why would you choose ??? setup ?

Would you just have active / passive and DRBD or similar ? Would you make a ceph or gluster setup ?
(Seems KVM and ceph is flavor of the day then the 3rd node may make sense)

Assumption is the VM's (2 or 3) runs as a KVM VM but I guess Xen, LXC, docker etc would also work fine.
