Create your own high-performance NAS using GlusterFS

GlusterFS is a file system that is designed to provide network storage that can be made redundant, fault-tolerant and scalable. It’s particularly well suited to applications that require high-performance access to large files. With GlusterFS, you can have enterprise- or scientific-research-grade storage up and running in minutes, but it wouldn’t be our first choice for the type of simple file sharing that Samba or NFS are usually used for.
