       GlusterFS - Clustered Filesystem.


       glusterfs [options] [mountpoint]


       GlusterFS  is  a  clustered  file-system  capable of scaling to several
       peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over  Infiniband  RDMA
       or  TCP/IP  interconnect  into  one large parallel network file system.
       Storage bricks can be made of any commodity  hardware  such  as  x86-64
       server  with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.  GlusterFS is fully POSIX
       compliant FileSystem.  On  client  side,  it  has  dependency  on  FUSE
       package,  on  server  side,  it  works  seemlessly  on  different OSes.
       (Currently supported on GNU/Linux, Mac OSX, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris).
