Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS On Ubuntu 9.10

Filed under
Ubuntu
HowTos

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 9.10) to one large storage server (distributed storage) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 9.10 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

So instead of hurling insults at the confused penguin nestlings, I have decided to help by giving you my own guide on how to make Ubuntu beautiful.
