I have been looking for a distributed filesystem for a while and I’ve found them all pretty confusing, including GlusterFS. but finally I decided to use it and I want to create some easy to understand tutorials for those who’re looking for a setup similar to mine.

First I will help you install it on your Debian 8.x.

Let’s add the GlusterFS Debian repository and its public key:

wget -O - http://download.gluster.org/pub/gluster/glusterfs/3.7/3.7.9/rsa.pub | apt-key add -

echo deb http://download.gluster.org/pub/gluster/glusterfs/3.7/3.7.9/Debian/jessie/apt jessie main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gluster.list

Now let’s update the repository list:

apt-get update

Then it’s the time to finally install GlusterFS. I will install both the server and the client, because we might need them both later.

apt-get install glusterfs-server glusterfs-client -y

And this is it. You now have the GlusterFS server and GlusterFS client and you can start using them. I will let you know how to do a bunch of interesting stuff with them very soon.
