GlusterFS is a file system that aggregates different storage nodes to provide a highly available NAS environment for virtual machines. This networked storage volume service enables the pooling of storage space for different architectures, with virtual machines being able to access this volume to write/read data to/from it.

The service is provided as a PaaS managed by the teams: deployment of instances, maintenance in operational condition, flexibility, security, and monitoring are all handled by our experts

  • Cluster deployment ensuring high availability
  • Redundant and resilient clustering: storage is replicated between data centers in the same region and backed up
  • Available on EB and ET regions and in all availability zones
  • Ability to create up to 15 storage volumes per Gluster (each volume has its own capacity management)

The management of the GlusterFS PaaS is done autonomously in ITCARE: provisioning and choice of volumes, resizing, deleting the cluster.
