Dear Members,
Even though Gluster team is growing at a steady phase, our aggressive development
schedule out phases our resources. We need to expand and also maintain a 1:1 developer /
QA engineer ratio. Our major development focus in the next 8 months will be towards:

  * Large scale regression tests (24/7/365)
  * Web based monitoring and management
  * Hot upgrade/add/remove of storage nodes
  * Gluster Embedded Storage Operating System ( GESOS )
  * and of course more translators: snapshot, dedup, compression, encryption..

In a month, we will also open up a 100TB Infiniband and GigE based clustered storage for 
community evaluation/testing.

We are in the middle of raising a venture capital investment. We need testimonials,
use-cases and active references. It will be a phenomenal help, if you all help
us cross this bridge.

How can you help:
* Add yourself to the "Who's using GlusterFS page":

* Provide testimonials:

* Volunteer as a reference for venture capital technical due-diligence:
   Please write to Anand Babu <ab at zresearch.com> your name, email and phone number.
   We promise, your information will be kept strictly confidential.

Thanks in advance,
Happy Hacking!
Gluster Team
