Note: As of early 2019, development on GD2 has stopped and is no longer maintained. The GD2 developers and maintainers, including me, have moved on to other projects. 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).
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).
