Installing Gluster and/or CEPHS

I'm an intermediate Linux user. Filesytems are not my strong suit. Now take that to the next level and I'm being tasked with taking 2 Cisco UCS 3260's (2 servers each so 4 servers total) each UCS with 180TB each. So I assume that I will divide the 180 TB in 2 per server. Therefore I will have 4 servers with 90TB each. I will install the OS (Red Hat 6 or 7) on SSD's separate from the 90TB for each server.

I have no idea of order of operation. So I'm looking for a step-by-step (lol) guide to install these servers and tie them all into a GlusterFS.  I do have licensing for Red Hat Gluster, but to say I'm intimidated is an understatement. My last assumption is once I complete the install I have to present a part of this filesystem via NFS ???  I will need this for both Block and File storage.

I maybe missing something but if you have the license, you must have surely got a reference to yhr the installation guide from Red Hat :

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Storage/3.1/html/Installation_Guide/chap-Installing_Red_Hat_Storage-Installing_using_ISO.html#idp728528

On the side - Gluster FS is not that widely used so finding a step-by-step guide maybe a challenge.

So are you proficient with this technology? Is this better than say CEPHS.  My application is for the use of redundancy , high availability. this large of storage is probably not going to be backed up so the idea the data is sync'd across 4 servers has been suggested as a viable solution.  What say you.

I'm not familiar with Gluster FS nor CEPHS - let's wait for other experts to reply.
