GlusterFS is an open source, distributed file system capable of scaling to several petabytes 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.
Geo-Replication is way to sync gluster volume to a remote site or we can say it is the way to distribute data across geographically distributed data networks.
GlusterFS Geo-replication provides a continuous, asynchronous, and incremental replication service from one site to another over Local Area Networks (LANs), Wide Area Network (WANs), and across the Internet.
Using GlusterFS Geo-replication, we can establish data redundancy in your storage environment, providing disaster recovery through existing LAN, WAN, and Internet connections.
