GlusterFS is a distributed file-system capable of scaling to several
petabytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA
or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file
system. GlusterFS is one of the most sophisticated file systems in
terms of features and extensibility. It borrows a powerful concept
called Translators from GNU Hurd kernel. Much of the code in GlusterFS
is in user space and easily manageable.
This package includes the glusterfs binary, the glusterfsd daemon and the
libglusterfs and glusterfs translator modules common to both GlusterFS server
and client framework.
