Gluster community @ FOSDEM’13 – BXL
January 23, 2013
In the case you or your company will be currently evaluating a new or another enterprise-level scale-out NAS file system or if you will be curious about aggregating various storage servers technology then I inform you you will have the opportunity to ask all the questions you have on this topic during FOSDEM’13 – Brussels / 2 & 3 February 2013 – @ the Gluster booth.
For those ones from BeNeLux who will not have to chance to be present and are interested by a Red Hat Enterprise Storage Presentation/Demo/POC then just let me know with a comment to this post and I will arrange a meeting for you.
Enclosed in this post the Wikipedia Gluster definition.
– Explanation coming from Wikipedia > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GlusterFS
GlusterFS is a scale-out NAS file system. It is free software, with some parts licensed under the GNU GPL v3 while others are dual licensed under either GPL v2 or the LGPL v3. It aggregates various storage servers over Ethernet or Infiniband RDMA interconnect into one large parallel network file system. GlusterFS is based on a stackable user space design. It has found a variety of applications including cloud computing, streaming media services, and content delivery networks.
