In this session we will discuss some important aspects in using the extensible user-space NFS server nfs-ganesha to scale out your storage needs. Nfs-ganesha supports NFSv3,v4,v4.1,v4.2 and pNFS. It also has an easily pluggable architecture called FSAL (File System Abstraction Layer) which enables seamless integration with many filesystem backends (GlusterFS, Ceph, GPFS, Lustre, XFS etc.). We will take a detailed look at the newly introduced CMAL (Cluster Manager Abstraction Layer) allows nfs-ganesha to operate in clustered mode and integrate with a variety of Cluster Managers, allowing for a flexible Clustered NAS solution with multi-head NFS configuration (active-active), distributed lock manager and recovery. We will also look at the example of nfs-ganesha and GlusterFS integration as a clustered storage solution and an open source pNFS solution.
