Installing GlusterFS on Ubuntu 18.04

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.

To install GlusterFS on Ubuntu 18.04, you can follow these steps:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install glusterfs-server
sudo systemctl start glusterd
sudo systemctl enable glusterd
sudo gluster pool list

If the trusted storage pool is empty, you need to add peers to the pool. Replace [IP_ADDRESS] with the IP address of another node running GlusterFS in your setup.

sudo gluster peer probe [IP_ADDRESS]

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
