CentOS 7 with GlusterFS on AArch64

Monday , 18, May 2015

Initially I meant for this to be a much more in-depth blog post about running GlusterFS on AArch64 hardware, but honestly it’s been ridiculously easyto get running. There isn’t much to say about running it that isn’t already covered in the GlusterFS quickstart guide. Even building GlusterFS on AArch64 was a snap; I simply pulled down the glusterfs-3.6.3 src.rpm and ran it through mock on my AArch64 build system. A few seconds later, I had around a dozen glusterfs packages ready for installation. After bringing up a test box, I was confident that this was working entirely too well and something would explode at any minute. I followed the quickstart, and a few minutes later, I had a working test implementation of GlusterFS up and running. There were no explosions, no fireworks, and no errors. The whole thing was incredibly painless to get working, and I can’t wait to see people using it in production.

Hopefully this means getting an official GlusterFS build for AArch64 will be as simple as asking nicely, and possibly working with the Storage SIG for access to the builders.
