[Gluster-devel] Stripe or Unify to achieve RAID-0 alike FS

If your bricks are full, you are probably going to have problems with  
any type of setup.    In general, I would say that the preferred  
method of people here is unify over striping.  If you are dealing with  
huge files that are bigger than your disk, that might be a reason to  
use striping, however i have no experience with using gluster for such  
things or dealing with files that large.

FYI, neither strip or unify creates redundancy alone, you still need  
combine them with something, probably the distribute translator.
