Jeremy - 
The absolute best would be hardware RAID. If that isn't an option mdadm (linux) is your better choice.

Subject: [Gluster-users] linux raid0 vs gluster raid0 

Suppose I've got 5 disks in a system connected to my IB network, and I 
want to host a Gluster filesystem on it for max I/O (large block, 
multiple client). 
Should I raid0 the 5 disks at the linux level, or the gluster level?
