1.4. About Public Cloud Installation

Red Hat Gluster Storage for Public Cloud packages glusterFS as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for deploying scalable NAS in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud. This powerful storage server provides all the features of On-Premise deployment, within a highly available, scalable, virtualized, and centrally managed pool of NAS storage hosted off-premise.
Additionally, Red Hat Gluster Storage can be deployed in the public cloud using Red Hat Gluster Storage for Public Cloud, for example, within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. It delivers all the features and functionality possible in a private cloud or datacenter to the public cloud by providing massively scalable and high available NAS in the cloud.
See Part III, “Red Hat Gluster Storage Administration on Public Cloud” for detailed information about this deployment type.
