Installing Gluster and/or CEPHS
Posted on 2016-09-12
I'm an intermediate Linux user. Filesytems are not my strong suit. Now take that to the next level and I'm being tasked with taking 2 Cisco UCS 3260's (2 servers each so 4 servers total) each UCS with 180TB each. So I assume that I will divide the 180 TB in 2 per server. Therefore I will have 4 servers with 90TB each. I will install the OS (Red Hat 6 or 7) on SSD's separate from the 90TB for each server.
I have no idea of order of operation. So I'm looking for a step-by-step (lol) guide to install these servers and tie them all into a GlusterFS. I do have licensing for Red Hat Gluster, but to say I'm intimidated is an understatement. My last assumption is once I complete the install I have to present a part of this filesystem via NFS ??? I will need this for both Block and File storage.
