i'm planning to develop a 4 node distributed replicated infrastructure with
Gluster 3.3
I'll use 4 DELL R510 with 8x 2TB SATA disks each, giving us 32TB raw
redundant and distributed capacity.

Some questions:
 - in the near future we will add 2 other identical nodes, will be
possibile to extend the gluster volume going up to 32+16GB or raw capacity?

 - What do you suggest, RAID5 or no-raid (one disk for each brick)? Our
primary use will be mail and web servers, so many small files.

Any other advice?
