[Gluster-users] What about Stripe mode

We recommend stripe only if you have very few, very large files that 
numerous clients need to access simultaneously. Otherwise and for most 
cases distribute (file level) is a better choice.

With some exceptions, when file data is striped across multiple nodes in 
a stripe set, and one node in that set goes down, then those blocks are 
what becomes inaccessible.  Other parts of file remain accessible.
