I work in an Enterprise environment, and in general once a RHEL release 
goes out of support it is time to replace the hardware anyway - We 
usually stick to a 4-5yr max lifecycle for hardware, which fits well 
with the RedHat 7yr support model. Assuming you are running non-RHEL 
software, an upgrade between major versions has to be a complete mess, 
if not impossible.

Back to the original posters query - What's your business requirements? 
I've learned that if you try to build a solution by putting technology 
first it never seems to work well. We don't even know if Gluster is 
appropriate for your needs.
