       GlusterFS - clustered file system


       glusterfs [options] [mountpoint]


       GlusterFS  is  a  clustered  file  system,  capable  of scaling to several peta-bytes.  It
       aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP and interconnect into one
       large  parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware,
       such as x86-64 server with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

       GlusterFS is fully POSIX compliant file system. On client side, it has dependency on  FUSE
       package,  on  server  side,  it works seemlessly on different operating systems. Currently
       supported on GNU/Linux and Solaris.
