12.7. GlusterFS Storage Pools

download PDF
GlusterFS is a userspace file system that uses FUSE. When enabled in a guest virtual machine it enables a KVM host physical machine to boot guest virtual machine images from one or more GlusterFS storage volumes, and to use images from a GlusterFS storage volume as data disks for guest virtual machines.


Red Hat Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 does not support the use of GlusterFS with storage pools. However, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 and later includes native support for creating virtual machines with GlusterFS using the libgfapi library.
