Red Hat Congratulates the Gluster Community and Welcomes New Board Members Citrix and Harvard University’s FASRC
February 6, 2014
John Mark Walker, lead, Gluster Community, Red Hat
Red Hat would like to congratulate the Gluster Community, the leading community for open software-defined storage, on its continuing expansion and momentum!
Citrix, Inc. and Harvard University’s Faculty of Arts and Science Research Computing (FASRC) group have joined the community. This marks the third major expansion of the Gluster Community in governance and projects since mid-2013. Monthly downloads of GlusterFS have tripled since the beginning of 2013, and traffic to gluster.org has increased by more than 50 percent over the previous year. There are now 45 projects on the Gluster Forge and more than 200 developers, with integrations either completed or in the works for OpenStack Object Storage (Swift), CloudStack, OpenStack Block Storage (Cinder), Ganeti, Archipelago, Xen, QEMU and Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), Ganesha, Java EE, and SAMBA, with more expected in 2014.
Citrix and FASRC will be represented by Mark Hinkle, senior director of Open Source Solutions, and James Cuff, assistant dean for Research Computing, respectively, joining two individual contributors: Anond Avati, lead GlusterFS architect and Red Hat engineer, and Theron Conrey, a contributing speaker, blogger and leading advocate for converged infrastructure. Rounding out the Gluster Community Board are Xavier Hernandez (DataLab); Marc Holmes (Hortonworks), Vin Sharma (Intel), Jim Zemlin (The Linux Foundation), Keisuke Takahashi (NTTPC), Lance Albertson (The Open Source Lab at Oregon State University), John Mark Walker (Red Hat), Louis Zuckerman, Joe Julian, and David Nalley.
Find out more at a very special Gluster Spotlight featuring the new board members on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, at 1 p.m. EST/10 a.m. PST/18:00 GMT.
