Striped-Replicated Volumes can be created like any other volume type
with GlusterFS-3.3.0. It is not restricted to be exported with NFS or
FUSE. It would still work with non-Hadoop environment.

The statement is the documentation is because of what we tested the type
of volume with. Considering the other type of volumes, Striped-Replicate
volume has been tested only with Hadoop workload as of now.

You can use striped-replicate volume, but have a test run for some time
before putting into production. If it works for you, we can say that
feature is good, but if there are issues, we are glad to fix it and make
it more stable.
