Welcome to an exceptionally busy month for Gluster!

Gluster Summit

Thanks to all who attended this year’s Gluster Summit. As you can see, conversations are continuing to happen, with notes from the Birds of a Feather sessions starting to come into the mailing lists. If something sparked your interest, please post about it!

We’ll be posting recordings of the talks as we’re able to, and slides as our speakers send them in.

In the meantime, if you have photos from the event that you’d like to share, please add them to our Flickr group:


Community Survey now open through November 28!

Come give us your feedback on what you’d like to see in Gluster!
