Hi Samuel,

Gluster is known to work with databases because we provide posix compliance. However we only recommend use of Gluster for unstructured file data.

Subject: [Gluster-devel] SQL databases storage

Hi all,

I am trying to store MySQL and PostgreSQL files on the Gluster. I
started with MySQL and was suprised because it seems to work fine.

Firstly, is someone trying to do the same thing ? I am interested in
feedbacks or any kind of experience reviews.
Secondly, as I thought, I encoutered several database corrumptions but
MySQL repair tool works well and can fix these problems (however I have
to do that manually so it is useless).

@Gluster: are you intereted in database storage over GlusterFS
feedbacks? because we are trying to deploy MySQL, PostgreSQL and LDAP
directly on a GlusterFS space. Is it interesting to track the errors and
try to fix or this technology is not provided for these types of using?

Thanks for your answers.

Kind regards.
