Hardware recommendation please

Latest response

Hello community,
I will like to build a lab at home to learn gluster storage. Can anyone recommend a storage hardware I can use for this purpose please?

Thank you

Gluster doesn't need specific storage hardware, the blocks can be configured and pooled from local disks on the Gluster nodes to build the Gluster volumes.

It's possible to setup a basic Gluster cluster on a few VMs very quickly (I've PoC'd it for customers like this multiple times on a laptop).

Thank you for the response. What I am looking specifically, is a hardware I can use to do direct fiber connections (FC) to my host. I have setup a virtualization environment using RHEV. I can configure storage using NFS or iscsi, but I am not able to practice using FC. What hardware will you recommend?

Thank you
