I think using Salt as the orchestration framework is a good idea. 
We would still need to have a consistent distributed store. I hope
Salt has the provision to use one of our choice. It could be consul
or something that satisfies the criteria for choosing alternate technology.
I would wait for a couple of days for the community to chew on this and
share their thoughts. If we have a consensus on this, we could 'port'
the 'basic'[1] volume management commands to a system built using Salt and
see for real how it fits our use case. Thoughts?

[1] basic commands - peer-probe, volume-create, volume-start and volume-add-brick
