Intel, Linux Foundation Join Gluster Community

Gluster

Seven charter member organizations have signed letters of intent to join the Gluster Community, an open source community for open software-defined storage, says Red Hat, sponsors of the Gluster project. The seven charter board members include DataLab, Hortonworks, Intel, The Linux Foundation, NTTPC, Open Source Lab at Oregon State University, and Red Hat.

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.
