You can make gluster only read from a designated node/volume but adding
option read-subvolume <vol-name>
to your replicate definition.
something like this
option transport-type tcp
option remote-host 22.214.171.124
option remote-subvolume brick
subvolumes vol-a vol-b vol-c [...]
option read-subvolume vol-a
