GlusterFS 3.3 File System Beta Now Available

Open source storage solution provider, Gluster, has announced the beta release of GlusterFS 3.3. Gluster’s software-only storage technology is available on-premise for virtual machines, and in public and private cloud environments. This latest version of Gluster’s innovative file system provides a system for data storage that enables users to access the same data as an object and as a file, simplifying management and controlling storage costs.

“GlusterFS 3.3 allows users to access data as objects from an Amazon S3 compatible interface and access files from a NAS interface including NFS and CIFS. In addition to decreasing cost and making it faster and easier to access object data, GlusterFS also delivers massive scalability, high availability and replication of object storage,” said Gluster.

 

 


“‘Enterprises are increasingly looking for a storage solution that can accelerate their adoption of the cloud and many have been hesitant because of the lack of storage technologies enabling them to do this,’ said Deni Connor, founder, Storage Strategies NOW. ‘Gluster is continuing to innovate and raise the competitive bar as they release new capabilities within their file system. GlusterFS 3.3, with unified file and object storage technology, is key to enterprise customer’s ability to adopt and deploy cloud storage solutions.’
