Chapter 1. Introduction to Containerized Red Hat Gluster Storage
With the Red Hat Gluster Storage 3.1 update 3 release, you can deploy Containerized Red Hat Gluster Storage in multiple scenarios. This guide provides step-by-step instructions to deploy Containerized Red Hat Gluster Storage in the following scenarios:
- Dedicated Storage Cluster - this solution addresses the use-case where the applications require both a persistent data store and a shared persistent file system for storing and sharing data across containerized applications.For information on creating OpenShift Container Platform cluster with persistent storage using Red Hat Gluster Storage, see https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en/openshift-container-platform/3.4/paged/installation-and-configuration/chapter-21-configuring-persistent-storage#install-config-persistent-storage-persistent-storage-glusterfs
- Chapter 2, Container-Native Storage for OpenShift Container Platform - this solution addresses the use-case where applications require both shared file storage and the flexibility of a converged infrastructure with compute and storage instances being scheduled and run from the same set of hardware.
