Subject Re: Cloustack 4.1.0 + GlusterFS
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2013 13:26:33 GMT


Those thinking that it's not a good idea, do you mind
explaining your point of view?
GlusterFS seems like the only real
alternative to a highly priced SAN for the primary storage...

nfs -o proto=tcp IP:/share /mnt/gluster/ If you are using CitrixXen you
should mount the share and make it as SR. For cloudstacka is clear
because you should use the option PreSetup when creating PrimaryStorage.
Personally, I doubt that using GlusterFS as a primary storage is a good
solution but for secondary storage it should be very usefull.
