You should clarify what you mean by 'performance'. For example, large file write, large file reads, small file writes, small file reads, etc...

This will help rule in / out Gluster or other distributed file systems.

Subject: [Gluster-users] Some questions about gluster

Hi all,

I need create a cluster storage solution, my primary objective is performance and secondary is scalable.

I've got a 50 machines (linux, like centos, with a compiled kernel) that need access to a storage solution (today is a opensolaris access with NFS).

My questions are:

1 - I export a volume with iSCSI and configure a Gluster in the machines (like a OCFS2 or GFS)?
2 - I configure a gluster in the storage (opensolaris) and access with a gluster client?

What's the best practice?

What do you recommend for me? Gluster is recommended for performance?

Thanks for your attention.
