1:30pm to 5:00pm
GlusterFS is an open source, distributed file system capable of scaling to several petabytes (actually, 72 brontobytes!) and handling thousands of clients.
In this workshop, attendees will learn about the Gluster project's history, roadmap and architecture. Presentations will include a deep dive into the latest release of GlusterFS, GlusterFS from the Systems Administrator's perspective, Gluster FS as a development platform and Storage in OpenStack and oVirt environments. Attendees will also be treated to use case talks from organizations using Gluster in production.
Presented by Red Hat.

GlusterFS Update and OpenStack Integration
Abstract: This session is to recap GlusterFS's history, architecture details and the latest development of new features. In addition, I will explain how GlusterFS can be integrated with OpenStack using various APIs such as FUSE client, Swift API and libgfapi.
Bio: Etsuji Nakai - Senior solution architect and cloud evangelist at Red Hat.
Trying and evaluating the new features of GlusterFS 3.5
Abstract: The new version of GlusterFS acquired many unique features again as software defined storage. I'll show you the architecture, behavior and code of the updates in detail through my evaluation. Let's try it!
Bio: Keisuke Takahashi - Sr. Software Engineer at NTT PC Communications. The earliest Gluster guy in Japan and now an advisory board member of the Gluster Community.
What you need to know about Ceph - OpenStack integration and comparison with GlusterFS
Abstract: Ceph is a distributed object store and file system designed to provide peta-scale scalability and excellent reliability. This session guides through the basic architecture of Ceph, integration with OpenStack and difference from GlusterFS.
Bio: Haruka Iwao - Software engineer. Worked to build a Ceph and OpenStack cluster at a gaming company.
GlusterFS is an open source, distributed file system capable of scaling to several petabytes (actually, 72 brontobytes!) 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.
No longer are users locked into costly, monolithic, legacy storage platforms. GlusterFS gives users the ability to deploy scale-out, virtualized storage – scaling from terabytes to petabytes in a centrally managed and commoditized pool of storage.
Attributes of GlusterFS include:
- Scalability and Performance
- High Availability
- Global Namespace
- Elastic Hash Algorithm
- Elastic Volume Manager
- Gluster Console Manager
