Need for GlusterFS for distributed bigdata services running in a kubernetes managed environment

Hello.. what type of storage architecture would be most useful for kafka, zookeeper running in a kubernetes and containerized environment. Would glusterfs that manages storage persistence, replication, resiliency, and HA be an overkill when the distributed bigdata services do this on their own anyway? We're debating internally why glusterfs would be needed for distributed bigdata systems like Cassandra, Mongo, Kafka, Zookeeper, etc. Thus trying to keep the architecture simpler. Just wondering if anyone has thoughts or experience to share that would help us a bit also.
