GlusterFS is a scalable, reliable network distributed file system that can be used in a wide variety of environments, large and small. It provides standard POSIX style file system semantics, through glusterfs mounts or exported via NFS, Samba or object-based services. GlusterFS can be used effectively in small environments to implement reliable and redundant storage, or in larger environments to provide large, scalable data stores.
System administrators who need to implement reliable file storage on commodity hardware, using standard protocols.
Participants will leave the tutorial with the ability to implement, monitor, and maintain a reliable and redundant, scalable file service.
