Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS On Debian Lenny

Debian, by suvi.

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers
(running Debian Lenny) to one large storage server (distributed
storage) with GlusterFS.
The client system (Debian Lenny 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.
