OpenShift Commons Briefing #67: GlusterFS and OpenShift (Tech Preview)
March 15, 2017 | by
OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary
In this briefing, Red Hat's Sayandeb Saha and Michael Adams, from Red Hat's Container Storage, Gluster Storage & Storage Management team discusses running a storage platform in Kubernetes pods. This is a game-changer not just for storage administrators but for application developers as well. This ground-breaking technology runs containerized Gluster (a mature distributed open source storage platform) inside Kubernetes and on Red Hat’s OpenShift Container Platform as a completely integrated solution, aggregating storage from local hosts (Kubernetes worker nodes) and serving it out to application containers. The solution integrates a fully-featured enterprise-grade storage platform with a wide variety of data services including snapshots, geo-replication, tiering, cloning, encryption; runs storage and compute containers on the same set of nodes, all provisioned, scaled and upgraded using Kubernetes.
The Briefing features a demo and a detailed roadmap for this solution.

Red Hatters, CNCF/Kubernetes project leads and numerous other members of the OpenShift Commons will be gathering together in Berlin for the upcoming OpenShift Commons Gathering co-located with Kubecon at the Austin Convention Center.
Don't forget to leave your feedback and suggestions for each video or in the comments section below. This will be incredibly important to shape this Special Interest Group and create sessions that fit the demands of all the OpenShift developers in the community.
