The developers of the cluster file system GlusterFS, not to be confused with the now Sun-owned ClusterFS company that make the Lustre cluster file system, have released version 2.0 of their software. GlusterFS is able to aggregate various storage systems connected over Infiband or TCP/IP to create one large parallel network file system. GlusterFS uses FUSE and runs in the userspace, making it more portable and easier to install. It has been deployed in production with a number of organisations.
