Hi Gluster gurus,
 With the new unified object storage will it be possible to set custom
meta data to an object? For example I would like to add a thumbnail as
a meta data to an object. If yes, how this can be done via the file
system access?



Yes it is possible to set custom metadata to an object, you need to prefix metadata key with "x-object-meta-". You can use POST method via rest interface or setfattr for file system interface.
