Ted,

Redhat Storage is based on GlusterFS which is fully open source and it 
works very well on Centos.
You can install it from 
http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/kkeithle/glusterfs/epel-6/

A relatively recent guide here:
http://www.gluster.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Gluster_File_System-3.3.0-Administration_Guide-en-US.pdf

I recommend you get on their mailing list and IRC channel.
