What is the reason for ? A lot of stuff is moving into Hyperconvergence 
and that saves a lot of hardware and power consumption.

The only thing I would look with more caution is the amount of memory 
Gluster itself consumes, but if there are enough resources in each host 
for Distributed Storage + Compute stuff I see no problems with that, 
unless someone has some strong technical reason for not.
