Hi All,

I am planning to build highly available Clustered NAS using GlusterFS,
which will be accessed by windows and linux clients on VMware or Hyper-V
I am looking for a cook book of sorts to achieve this, since this is new
implementation  I want to do it right from the begining

Hardware : 2x 4 U servers with 36 X 4 TB drives (I understand minimum 3
nodes are required for reliable cluster, but lack of space on the rack
means we have to start with 2 and add additional nodes later

Workload: Store VMware VM files and store backup data

Compatibility : VMware Hypervisor

This is going to be production system, so should I use RAID or EC is ready
for production?

High Availability is the key

Any guidance will be much appreciated.
