Dear Community Users,

Gluster recently announced the ALPHA release of the GlusterFS
Native NFS Server. We would like to thank all of you who sent
feedback to us.

The file pointed to by the URL below ( KnowYourNFSAlpha-1.pdf )
shows some results with the GlusterFS Native NFS Server.

A very simple configuration and the simple dd test was used
to demonstrate how quickly the Native NFS Server could do protocol
translation and pass data to and fro between the GlusterFS 
domain on one side and the NFSv3 domain on the other.

Please have a look and try out the NFS Alpha release in your
test environment with your unique workloads and provide us


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

The Release notes describe where RPMs and source code can be obtained

on usage are also provided.

Tejas Bhise.
