The Gluster project is out this week with the second beta
release of GlusterFS 3.3, the final release is expected before the
end of the year. The new release provides an integration point for
Apache Hadoop enabling Hadoop users to use Gluster for storage.
According to Gluster, their filesystem is also comptable with
Hadoop's own HDFS (Hadoop File System), though Gluster provides
some additional benefits including scalability and performance
"GlusterFS 3.3 brings two new protocols into the file system,"
AB Periasamy, CTO and co-founder of Gluster told InternetNews.com.
"One of them is the object protocol so you can access the data as
objects, similar to the Amazon S3 protocol."
