Finally Gluster v3.0 release happened on schedule. Community played a crucial role in 
helping Gluster mature to this stage. v3.0 is a major mile stone achieved for all of us. 
Starting from this release, Gluster has transformed itself into a clustered storage 
platform, entirely manageable through web GUI. Its rated [E] for everyone!. No sys admin 
skills required, no need for EMC or Cisco certification.

Heart of Gluster Platform is the GlusterFS v3 file system. Administrators can use Gluster 
Platform on the storage server side (on bare metal hardware) and use GlusterFS native 
mounting or NFS or CIFS or WebDAV on the client side.

If you are hacker, you like command line interface and dark consoles, GlusterFS v3 can be 
used independently (just as you did before) on a regular POSIX compatible 64bit operating 
system. Can we rate it as [A] for Administrators only ;).
