Hi Aspasia,

     Sorry for late reply, Yes we have successfully deployed GlusterFS on
Sun thumper platforms and are currently working in production from months.
Please follow the below link to understand how to compile and prerequisites
for compiling GlusterFS

Please let us know if you face any problems.
