Setting up the volume instances as active/passive has been done by a 
number of users for quite some time and it has been working fine, as far 
as I know.  If you are looking for an HA setup right now, that is the 
safest approach.

We have been working on getting HA (Active/Active) support into Cinder 
and much of the support is there but we are still working on determining 
how we can test and validate that drivers do functions in Active/Active 
mode.  Once we have agreement on the testing process you will see 
drivers getting marked as supporting Active/Active HA.

Hope this information helps.
