Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 11.10

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 11.10

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers
(running Ubuntu 11.10) to one large storage server (distributed storage)
with GlusterFS.
The client system (Ubuntu 11.10 as well) 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.

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 11.10 – Automatic File Replication Across Two Storage Servers

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 11.10 – Automatic File Replication (Mirror) Across Two Storage Servers

This tutorial shows how to set up a high-availability storage with two storage servers (Ubuntu 11.10) that use GlusterFS.
Each storage server will be a mirror of the other storage server, and
files will be replicated automatically across both storage servers. The
client system (Ubuntu 11.10 as well) will be able to access the storage
as if it was a local filesystem.

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 11.10

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Ubuntu 11.10. 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.

How To Set Up Software RAID1 On A Running LVM System (Incl. GRUB2 Configuration) (Ubuntu 11.10)

How To Set Up Software RAID1 On A Running LVM System (Incl. GRUB2 Configuration) (Ubuntu 11.10)

This guide explains how to set up software RAID1 on an already running LVM
system (Ubuntu 11.10). The GRUB2 bootloader will be configured in such a
way that the system will still be able to boot if one of the hard
drives fails (no matter which one).
