GlusterFS is a popular, software-only distributed storage system and the lynchpin of the Gluster community. Every day, more users and developers come to appreciate the simplicity, ease of use, and flexibilty of scale-out storage, GlusterFS style. In this talk, attendees will learn about the project's history, what's new in the latest release (version 3.4) and what's new in the project roadmap for the 3.5 release, the community's governance structure and the developer toolset available on Gluster.org.

GlusterFS 3.4 is now in beta and will soon be ready for GA. One of the major features of this release is the QEMU integration and block device translator. This will significantly increase the scope of possible use cases for GlusterFS. With the QEMU integration, we’re bypassing FUSE and going through a new client library, libgfapi.

In addition to the QEMU integration, other features coming in 3.4:

* WORM (write once read many)
* Operating version for glusterd
* Block device translator
* Duplicate Request Cache
* Server Quorum
* libgfapi
* NFSv3 ACL support
