GlusterFS is a distributed file system that can scale to several PetaBytes. oVirt is a management platform for Kernel based Virtual Machine (KVM) and can be used to manage GlusterFS as well.

This presentation will discuss integration of KVM and GlusterFS through various mechanisms like: 

  • GlusterFS's FUSE based native protocol
  • Qemu and libglusterfsclient 

Details on how both file and block based interfaces can be presented to  host KVM images from GlusterFS will be provided. 

The presentation will then talk about how oVirt can be used to provision GlusterFS volumes and how such volumes can then be used for hosting KVM  images. Configuration details of both these features from oVirt would be  presented.

The benefits emerging from integration of these projects would be highlighted as well.
