Gluster

Gluster delivers open source scale-out cloud storage software focused on simplifying the task of storing and managing the explosive growth of unstructured data.

GlusterFS allows enterprises to combine large numbers of commodity storage and compute resources into a high performance, virtualized and centrally managed pool. Both capacity and performance can scale on demand, from a few terabytes to multiple petabytes, using both on-premise commodity hardware and public cloud storage blocks. By combining commodity economics with a scale-out approach, customers can achieve radically better price and performance, in an easy-to-manage solution that can be configured for the most demanding workloads. Gluster has been deployed by hundreds of global enterprises and service providers across industries including media, healthcare, consumer internet, energy, and biotech. Common use cases include on-premise clustered NAS, shared storage for virtual machines, and public/private cloud storage.

Gluster is privately-held and headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.
