Fundamentals

GlusterFS is a free and open source scalable filesystem it can be used for cloud storage or to store data in a local network. It can be used to set up an active-active filesystem cluster with failover and loadbalancing via DNS-round robin. Together with CTDB it is possible to build a fileserver for a network with the following advantages:

  • Expandable without downtime
  • Mount Gluster volumes via the network
  • Posix ACL support
  • Different configurations possible (depending of your needs)
  • Self-healing
  • Support of snapshots if LVM2 thinly provisioned is used for the bricks

The different configurations available are:

  • Replicated Volume
  • Distributed Volume
  • Striped Volume
  • Replicated-Distributed Volume
  • Dispersed Volume
