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.
In this session, Red Hat's Thomas Cameron will demonstrate how to install and configure GlusterFS. Thomas will demonstrate setting up distributed and replicated storage, and how to share that storage to Linux hosts using the native client, *nix hosts using NFS, and/or Windows hosts using Samba.
