More feedback - after test ceph a lot and feedback from the ceph user list I 
concluded that my use cases were not a good fit to ceph. To small basically, 
only two osd's, which impacted performance and complicated to manage.

I revisited gluster, this time formatted the filesystem per recommendations 
(difficult to find). This seemed to resolved the I/O problems, haven't been 
able to recreate them no matter what the load.
