"Gluster Announces Apache Hadoop Storage Compatibility in Latest
 GlusterFS Release"
 August 23, 2011

  "... today announced the release of GlusterFS 3.3 beta 2 which
   includes compatibility for Apache Hadoop. This latest enhancement
   to GlusterFS uses the standard file system APIs available in Hadoop
   to provide a new storage option for Hadoop deployments. With this
   new feature, GlusterFS is the first open source, POSIX-compliant
   file and object storage solution that works with Hadoop. Compatible
   with existing MapReduce-based applications and with the ability
   to co-exist with HDFS, this new functionality opens up data within
   Hadoop deployments to any file- or object-based application,
   providing a broad new range of options for big data deployments."

Features and benefits include (一部) :
  *)"Fast access to data - with no centralized metadata or name server,
     GlusterFS delivers better performance and easier manageability,
     with no centralized point of failure;
  *)"N-way replication - synchronous and asynchronous replication enables
     users to replicate data, changes are tracked and queued to ensure
     data stays synchronized regardless of latency or potential network
  *)"Increased flexibility in sizing - with Gluster, Hadoop deployments
     are no longer limited to large block sizes or 16 TB volume sizes;"
