Announcing Gluster Storage Release 3.12 for Oracle Linux 7

Avi Miller
Senior Manager

Oracle is pleased to announce the release of Gluster Storage Release 3.12 for Oracle Linux 7.

Gluster Storage is an open source, POSIX compatible filesystem capable of supporting thousands of clients while using commodity hardware. Gluster provides a scalable, distributed file system that aggregates disk storage resources from multiple servers into a single global namespace. Gluster provides built-in optimisation for different workloads and can be accessed using either an optimised Gluster FUSE client or standard protocols including SMB/CIFS. Gluster can be configured to enable both distribution and replication of content with quota support, snapshots and bit-rot detection for self-healing. 


Gluster Storage is available on the Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) and the Oracle Linux yum server. It is currently available for the x86_64 architecture only and can be installed on any Oracle Linux 7 server running either the Red Hat Compatible Kernel (RHCK) or the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) Release 4 or 5. 

For more information on hardware requirements and how to install and configure Gluster, please review the Gluster Storage for Oracle Linux Release 3.12 documentation.


Support for Gluster Storage is available to customers with an Oracle Linux Premier support subscription. Refer to Oracle Linux 7 License Information User Manual for information about Oracle Linux support levels.
