Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.0.x On Debian Squeeze


Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.0.x On Debian Squeeze



This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Debian Squeeze. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS
here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was
a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several
peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or
TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system.
Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64
servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.
