Limiting factor will be my network anyway.

Tough decision this, I keep swinging to and through - gluster is easier to 
setup and conceptually simpler. But ceph is better integrated with proxmox and 
seems to have the commitment of the px team - I prefer to go with the actively 
supported tech.

Bit concerned about glusterfs's documentation, which to me, is poor.

But I do like that glusterfs is backed by a filesystem, so you can directly 
access its files in an emergency.

I was going to set up a OVS bond, but both ovs and linux bonds have a wide 
range of modes, including LACP
