Red Hat Gluster Storage Version Compatibility and Support

Updated 2021-06-07T08:09:03+00:00

This article is the definitive reference for Red Hat Gluster Storage cluster compatibility and Red Hat Gluster Storage compatibility with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and Red Hat Openshift Container Storage. If you notice something missing or need more information, comment and let us know.

Red Hat Gluster Storage Releases, Op-Version, What's New

This table in the KCS highlights the release specific information. It indicates the op-version required for a Red Hat Gluster Storage node to use all of its available features correctly. Note that using a cluster consisting of nodes with different Red Hat Gluster Storage versions limits functionality to that of the node with the oldest version. If you have a cluster that consists of nodes with multiple different versions, use the op-version value for the oldest version of Red Hat Gluster Storage in your cluster.

If you are installing Red Hat Gluster Storage packages on an existing Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation: Red Hat Gluster Storage requires a kernel version of 2.6.32-431.17.1 or higher. Starting with the RHGS-3.5.1 release, we have stopped shipping updates for RHEL 6 and we have introduced RHEL 8 support with RHGS-3.5.2 release. Due to a few limitations(unavailability of Webadmin and supported upgrade path of RHEL 7 based RHGS to RHEL 8 based RHGS) with RHEL 8 support, we recommend using the latest RHEL 7 with the latest RHGS. For any further guidance, please reach out to Red Hat Support.

Please refer to the KCS Solution for detailed information about all released versions, rpm version associated, corresponding op-versions etc.

IMPORTANT: Red Hat Gluster Storage volumes can be used as storage domains with Red Hat Virtualization 4.4 by creating Gluster volumes and optimizing them for virtualization image store use-cases through the Gluster command-line interface. However, you can not manage the Red Hat Gluster Storage servers and volumes through the Red Hat Virtualization 4.4 administration portal. For more information on managing Red Hat Gluster Storage volumes using the command-line interface, refer
