I have been a long time Gluster fan however I gave up on it about a year
ago when it just was not working out for xen, so I moved to NetApp. I now
am looking at offering storage as a service and NetApp just can't scale or
offer the price point needed.
I would love to hear feedback from users who are running large amounts of
data on GlusterFS.
I want to scale to hundreds of notes, but starting small at first. Looking
at 5 cites with the following:
Dual Xeon X5680 3.3 GHz
3Ware 9750-8i 6 Gb/s
32 2TB drives RAID 6 + hot spare
Mellanox MHGS18 10 Gb/s Infiniband
Each server will have raw 60 TB of space and two servers will be unified
together for redundancy. Pairs of servers will be distributed into one
240 TB volume in each city. The plan needs to scale to 4 PB in each within
