Highly Available

Gluster delivers enterprise class high availability via local and remote replication capabilities. Gluster is the only highly available storage solution for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Elastic Block Storage (EBS) and GoGrid’s Cloud Hosting environment. Gluster enables Business Continuity in the public cloud and enhances both Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery capabilities in the private cloud.

Superior Economics

With Gluster superior economics is the rule, not the exception. In both public and private cloud environments you pay only for what you use. In the private cloud you are empowered to choose and deploy on any certified commodity hardware. Only pay for performance and capacity as and when it is needed. Visit our product pages for Public and Private Clouds to learn more about Gluster’s superior economics.

Easy to Use

Gluster deploys in minutes in both the public and private cloud and is simple to configure and put into production. Performance and capacity scale linearly and non-disruptively.


Gluster believes you should be able to deploy and manage storage the same way you do compute resources today. Storage must be a scalable, commoditized, virtualized and centrally managed pool. Gluster bridges the gap between virtual computing and legacy proprietary monolithic storage enabling true datacenter virtualization.
