 Fully understand your situation. it's your application characteristic
which one file missing will bring the upper layer
application not work.So you want to make the impact of brick failure as
small as possible.

I think out the distributed replica volume,but disk utilization is  less

 The capacity cost seems the tradeoff of high availability,if you can't
bear it.Two suggestions:
 1. replace replica with EC to overcome the low disk usage while maybe
bring some performance issue.However I'm new to glusterfs and not very sure
about the EC implementation detail and the stableness.

 2. let your application layer to do some work solve the disperse of the
data without glusterfs involving it.

 Hope that is helpful for you.
