Gluster is storage for the modern data center, providing scale-out NAS within the RightScale Cloud Management Platform. Hundreds of enterprises worldwide use our software-only platform to aggregate storage resources (either on-premise or in the cloud) into a unified high performance, standardized, virtualized, and centrally managed pool. The Gluster Virtual Storage Appliance for RightScale is deployed in minutes in Amazon EC2 instances. Within the Amazon Web Services environment data is stored on Elastic Block Storage (EBS). Gluster Virtual Storage Appliances pool multiple EBS storage elements together eliminating capacity limitations of a single device and smoothing out small performance variations across the pool. The Gluster Virtual Storage Appliance is the only highly available virtual storage solution for Amazon EC2 instances. Users with high availability requirements can rely upon the Gluster file replication capability to provide N-way replication to assure data availability. Additionally, the Gluster AMI works across Amazon Web Services Availability Zones.

Customers can use Gluster to extend the scalability and cost-effective benefits of the RightScale Management Dashboard to their highly available cloud storage solution.
