The actual total storage used across all the children of stripe will be the same as file size. Hence there is no extra storage

I was mentioning about the size got by du -s <file>
consumed, though ls -lh <file> on each backend reports size approximately equal to file size (which will make total storage to be equal to n * file-size, n being number of children of stripe).

sorry for the confusion.

on the backend, striped files have holes in those regions data is not present. Hence size of the files on all nodes is the same. Advantage of stripe is the speed gained during reads and storage is not saved by striping.
