Tech enthusiast and consultant John Read designed and implemented a one petabyte Red Hat Storage Server / GlusterFS environment on HP proliant hardware. There were a number of business requirements he wanted to meet with this implementation, including very low acquisition costs, RHEL clients, archival of data from a high-performance compute environment, usage of commodity hardware, and 10GB/s Ethernet. In this post, he describes the design, hardware configurations, rack and network layout, volume layout, and high availability configurations. You can get all the details about his deployment in his blog post.
