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.
GlusterFS is developed by Red Hat, Inc.
