Gluster recently announced a new version of GlusterFS, version 3.2, which includes new features that deliver major advancements to our highly available scale-out, open source storage solutions for public and private cloud environments. These new features provide additional replication capabilities, quota management, and advanced monitoring.
Join us for a free webinar this Wednesday, May 25 to discuss these new features with Dave Garnett, VP of Product Management. Dave will walk you through a brief overview of GlusterFS and then go into detail on the new features of version 3.2. At the end of the webcast we’ll have ample time for live Q&A to answer any questions you may have.

New features in GlusterFS 3.2 include:
- Geo-Replication: providing continuous, asynchronous and incremental replication service from one site to another over local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), and across the Internet. Only incremental changes are replicated, eliminating the need for snapshot-like copies of whole files or volumes. In addition, 3.2 features intelligent asynchronous replication in which GlusterFS tracks changes to the primary data and replicates in real time across a WAN. Changes are tracked and queued to ensure data stays synchronized regardless of latency or potential network interruptions.
- Usage Quotas: with the ability to set quota on usage of disk space by directories or volumes. Storage administrators can control disk space utilization at the directory and/or volume levels with Gluster by setting limits to allocate disk space at any level in the volume and directory hierarchy. This is particularly useful in cloud deployments to facilitate the utility billing model.
- Advanced Monitoring Tools: that provide familiar monitoring and statistics capabilities for I/O operations and performance statistics. Gluster Top presents the top 100 operations per server, providing visibility into the I/O workload pattern. Gluster Profile provides performance statistics over a user-defined time period for metrics including latency, number and type of calls, and amount of data read or written.
Please join us on May 25 for a webinar to get an overview of this release and learn how you can take advantage of Asynchronous Geo-Replication, Usage Quotas, and Advanced Monitoring Tools.
