The only thing you gain with raidz1 I think is maybe more usable space.
Performance in general will not be as good, and whether the vdev is
mirrored or z1 neither can survive 2 drives failing.  In most cases the z10
will rebuild faster with less impact during rebuild. If you are already
using gluster 3 node replicate as VM practices suggest then you are already
pretty well protected if you lose the wrong 2 drives as well.
