Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Scale-out storage startup Gluster today released version 3.1 of its Gluster Storage Platform with dynamic provisioning features that let administrators grow, shrink and migrate storage volumes in virtual environments.

"The Gluster Storage Platform, which is aimed primarily at storing large volumes of unstructured data, combines open source software with commodity server hardware to deliver a low-cost platform that scales linearly to house multiple petabytes of data.
