Performance and sizing guide: Red Hat Gluster Storage on QCT


As a software-defined scale-out storage solution, Red Hat® Gluster Storage has emerged as a compelling platform for distributed file services in the enterprise. Those deploying Gluster can benefit from having simple cluster configurations, optimized for different file service loads. For example, workloads based on small files can often benefit from different kinds of underlying hardware than workloads based on large files. To address the need for performance and sizing guidance, Red Hat and Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) have performed extensive testing to characterize optimized configurations for deploying Red Hat Gluster Storage on several QCT servers.
