Gluster Storage Platform Released

Gluster Storage Platform is a stand alone storage software stack that integrates the GlusterFS file system, an operating system layer, and a web-based management interface and installer. The primary focus is on ease of use whether you are deploying a few terabytes or hundreds of petabytes. Installation is a simple process that enables customers to deploy a few hundred terabytes of clustered storage in two steps and just a few mouse clicks. File system features have also been added and enhanced, the most significant of which are optimization for VM environments and providing always-on availability for VMs.
