The Gluster-4.0 release is here, one of the most important releases for the Gluster community in quite some time. The bump in the major version is being brought about by a few new changes, namely a change in the on-wire protocol, and the new management framework, GlusterD2 (GD2 for short). GD2 has been under development for a very long time. We are excited to finally get it in the hands of users.
I just presented a talk on GlusterD Next Gen / GlusterD-2.0 at the first ever Gluster Summit at Barcelona. I’m embedding the slide deck here for all to see. Fullscreen it to see it properly (you also need to use Chrome/Chromium to get the slide renedered correctly, some issue with CSS that I’m too lazy to fix).
