Gluster  has a big users community and seems to be a good alternative  to easily test any concept through its stackable translators approach.  On the other hand, the current Distributed File Systems design has not  really evolved and modern solutions still rely on an old metadata and  I/O servers model. From our point of view, this model does not take into  account the infrastructure’s physical topology, leading to expensive  network communications that limit the performance and the scalability of  the system. In this talk we'll discuss our  impressions/advantages/problems of using Gluster when trying to develop a  prototype that aims at reducing the traffic to the minimal needs and  keep the applications performance over multiple sites.
