[Gluster-users] Looking for configuration suggestions

I am in the process of completely overhauling the storage setup here and 
plan to go to glusterfs.

The storage involved is 8x Coraid units, 2x JetStor and a Dell MD3000.  
The Coraid and JetStor are network connected via ATA over Ethernet & 
iSCSI.  The disks are also being upgraded to 1TB in the process.  I do 
plan to use unify to bring most if not all the storage together.

My first question is that since these units are over 12TB after being 
RAIDed, should I divide them up into smaller bricks or just use the 
entire 12TB+ as one brick?

What other things should I consider?

Thanks for the help!
