I guess there is no need to mention that lattency is the real killer of Gluster. What is the DC-to-DC lattency and MTU (ethernet) ?Also, if you use SSDs , consider using noop/none I/O schedulers.
Also, you can obtain the tuned profiles used in Red Hat Gluster Storage via this source rpm:
You can combine the settings from the tuned profile for Hypervisor and combine it with the gluster random I/O tuned profile.
Also worth mentioning, RHGS uses 512M shard size, while default in upstream gluster is just 64M. Some oVirt users have reported issues and suspect is gluster's inability to crwate enough shards.

It's worth mentioning that if your network bandwidth is smaller than the raid bandwidth, you can consider to enable the cluster.choose-local (which oVirt's optimizations disable) for faster reads.
Some people would also consider going with JBOD (replica 3) mode. I guess you can test both prior moving to prod phase 

P.S.: Don't forget to align the LVM/FS layer to the hardware raid.
