Re: Red Hat Global File System

Shalom Paolo,

We are. It seems to be promising. It permits simultaneous read/write access from two machines to the same file on shared storage.

That is useful, as is the certification of Oracle RAC with this GFS system. It could prove to be an advantage for Red Hat and its clones xos and Centos.

Re: Red Hat Global File System

The Red Hat GFS page says:-
"Red Hat GFS allows Red Hat Enterprise Linux servers to simultaneously read and write to a single shared file system on the SAN, achieving high performance and reducing the complexity and overhead of managing redundant data copies. Red Hat GFS has no single point of failure, is incrementally scalable from one to hundreds of Red Hat Enterprise Linux servers, and works with all standard Linux applications"

which seems quite promising.
