gluster-switft is obsolete.
The "proper" way to use the object storage is with Swift:
"Object Store technology is built upon OpenStack Swift. OpenStack
Swift allows users to store and retrieve files and content through a
simple Web Service REST (Representational State Transfer) interface as
objects. Red Hat Gluster Storage uses glusterFS as a back-end file
system for OpenStack Swift."
and you need the whole Swift stack from OpenStack:
# rpm -qa | grep swift
but as wrote by Ben, there are too many moving parts to get that working.
