Open Source, Scale-out, Clustered NAS using nfs-ganesha and GlusterFS - Anand Subramanian, Red Hat

In this session we will discuss some important aspects in integrating nfs-ganesha, a user-space, modular and extensible NFS server with the scale-out, distributed GlusterFS filesystem to create an effective Clustered NAS solution. The integration of nfs-ganesha with GlusterFS enables access to the filesystem using NFSv3, NFSv4/4.1 and we will also look at an Open Source pNFS server implementation using nfs-ganesha and GlusterFS. We will also look at the salient features of nfs-ganesha making it a great fit for a scale-out, Clustered NAS environment like the modular FSAL (File System Abstraction Layer) architecture and the CMAL (Cluster Manager Abstraction Layer) allowing easy integration with any Cluster Manager, Cluster-wide lock manager and lock recovery aspects etc. Finally we will also try to cover some of the important use-cases of nfs-ganesha.
