I tried it to host Virtual Machines images and it didn't work at all. Was hoping to be able to spread the IOPS more through the cluster.
 That's part of what I was trying to say on the email I sent earlier today.

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.
