I do this using rsnapshot. You might want to have a look, but
something like bacula is another common solution. Because gluster
volumes can be quite large, you might want to have multiple
independent rsnapshot runs working concurrently. I wrote a puppet
module to manage and setup the separate rsnapshot instances which is
not a native rsnapshot feature. Have a look if you like:

Exactly... Or by using something like puppet-gluster to define your
configuration, and then backing up your puppet code. [plug]

Hope this helps,
