GlusterFS is a distributed file system that allows you to create scalable and highly available network-attached storage. It provides advanced features like replication, striping, and load balancing, making it useful for various use cases such as cloud computing, big data, and high-performance computing.

Replace [VOLUME_NAME] with the name you want to give the volume, [REPLICATION|STRIPE] with the desired volume type, [NUMBER_OF_BRICKS] with the number of bricks, and [BRICK_X_PATH] with the paths to the bricks (directories on the local filesystem).
sudo gluster volume start [VOLUME_NAME]
sudo mkdir /mnt/glusterfs
sudo mount -t glusterfs localhost:[VOLUME_NAME] /mnt/glusterfs
