Dear Community Users,

Gluster is happy to announce the ALPHA release of the native NFS Server.
The native NFS server is implemented as an NFS Translator and hence
integrates very well, the NFS protocol on one side and GlusterFS protocol
on the other side.

This is an important step in our strategy to extend the benefits of
Gluster to other operating system which can benefit from a better NFS
based data service, while enjoying all the backend smarts that Gluster

The new NFS Server also strongly supports our efforts towards
becoming a virtualization storage of choice.

The release notes of the NFS ALPHA Release are available at -


The Release notes describe where RPMs and source code can be obtained
and where bugs found in this ALPHA release can be filed. Some examples 
on usage are also provided.

Please be aware that this is an ALPHA release and in no way should be
used in production. Gluster is not responsible for any loss of data
or service resulting from the use of this ALPHA NFS Release.

Feel free to send feedback, comments and questions to: nfs-alpha at gluster.com

Tejas Bhise.
