AFAIK it is not the best practice from Gluster. 

I tested it using single node and it should work fine. 
everything depend on your traffic and configuration. 

For example, 
Single node with only one NIc is not the same as with multiple nics 
Using only one HDD for both OS and volumes or SSD for OS and another SSD for 

so... it depends on the setup...
