GlusterFS is an open source, distributed file system capable of scaling to several petabytes (actually, 72 brontobytes!) and handling thousands of clients. GlusterFS clusters together storage building blocks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect, aggregating disk and memory resources and managing data in a single global namespace. GlusterFS is based on a stackable user space design and can deliver exceptional performance for diverse workloads.
Gluster and Ovirt Integration
Ovirt is mainly a Virtualization management platform. It supports KVM based viritualization capabilities. Gluster community is working with Ovirt for the past two years to integrate Gluster management with Ovirt. Gluster managment integration with Ovirt gives a cool web UI for the admin to manage the Gluster cluster. I am planning to give a talk on Deploying and Managing Gluster using OVirt and following will be my agenda.
