Gluster blog stories provide high-level spotlights on our users all over the world
This release of Gluster ushers in improvements for container storage, hyperconverged storage and scale-out Network Attached Storage (NAS) use cases. These use cases have been the primary focus areas for previous releases over the last 12-18 months and will continue to be the primary focus for the next three planned releases.
One of the things we’re really focused on as a project is persistent storage for containerized microservices. Part of this effort has been working with heketi and gluster-kubernetes to enhance our integration with containers. Continuing in the same vein, 3.10 brings about the following key improvements for container storage:
Deployment of hyperconverged storage for containers and virtualization is also a focus area for 3.10. gdeploy provides an improved ansible playbook for deploying hyperconvergence with oVirt and cockpit-gluster provides a wizard to make deployment using this playbook easy with oVirt. gk-deploy makes it easy to deploy Heketi and Gluster in hyperconverged container deployments.
There have been various improvements for scale-out NAS deployments in 3.10. Some of them include:
Needless to say, none of this would have been possible without the support of our contributors and maintainers. Thank you to all those who made it happen! We are excited at this juncture to deliver features that enhance the user experience on our key focus areas of container storage, hyperconvergence & scale-out NAS. We intend building on this momentum for further improvements on our key focus areas. Stay tuned and get involved as we progress along this journey with further Gluster releases!
