Depends on work-load. We recommend it for more of transaction workload,
like DB, or jenkins etc.

We are focusing on getting it used as a default project in container
workload. So, it wouldn't be a replacement for GD1 yet. Once it works
smoothly in that work load, we will get it into default gluster stack.
Please refer to https://github.com/gluster/gcs for the progress on this

We are seeing how to provide 'thin-arbiter' feature we got into filesystem
side in the releases. Will keep the users list informed about it. We should
have something for users by glusterfs-6.0 timeframe (which is next release).

Currently, we are trying to stabilize the current codebase. The
optimizations would follow later. We are happy to get help here. Both in
terms of code, and guidance (through github issues).

gluster-ansible project already has supports for automated geo-replication
management. Can that be tried? We are planning to integrate more of
monitoring with gluster-prometheus later.

- heketi coming up features?
