[Gluster-users] Building a new storage setup

I'm planning on moving an existing storage setup that is a horrible 
kludge of cross mounted NFS.

I have 8x Coraid shelves and 2x JetStor units that I want to aggregate 
into one large storage pool and then keep it replicated (via AFR?) to a 
remote location.  My current thought is to create a separate brick for 
each unit and then use unify to turn them into one large filesystem.  
Since I will be migrating existing data onto the new bricks and then 
turning those units into bricks, it will be an incremental process.  So, 
I'm looking for suggestions on how to set this up and what to look out 
for.  Also, should I wait to implement some of this until after 1.4 is
