(Packages are also available in NetBSD and maybe FreeBSD.)

Most packages are available from download.gluster.org

Ubuntu packages are available from Launchpad

As can be seen, the old distributions don’t have pkgs of the latest GlusterFS, usually due to dependencies that are too old or missing. Similarly, new distributions don’t have pkgs of the older versions, for the same reason.

[1] In Fedora, Fedora Updates, or Fedora Updates-Testing for Primary architectures. Secondary architectures seem to be slow to sync with Primary; RPMs for aarch64 are often available from download.gluster.org

Install And Use SALTStack In A Mixed Environment

Install And Use SALTStack In A Mixed Environment

Salt is a new approach to infrastructure management. Easy enough to
get running in minutes, scalable enough to manage tens of thousands of
servers, and fast enough to communicate with them in seconds.
Salt delivers a dynamic communication bus for infrastructures that can
be used for orchestration, remote execution, configuration management
and much more… The main porpuse of this document is not just install SaltStack,
because it is well documented elsewhere, but rather give you a slight
insight of its usability.

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Debian Wheezy

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Debian Wheezy

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Debian Wheezy. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS
here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was
a local filesystem.

GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several
peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or
TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system.
Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64
servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

your container’s MySQL databases on it to make MySQL faster. This
tutorial explains how you can mount host devices/partitions/directories
in an OpenVZ containers with bind mounts.
