Striping Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

This tutorial shows how to do data striping (segmentation of
logically sequential data, such as a single file, so that segments can
be assigned to multiple physical devices in a round-robin fashion and
thus written concurrently) across four single storage servers (running
Ubuntu 12.04) with GlusterFS.
The client system (Ubuntu 12.04 as well) will be able to access the
storage as if it was a local filesystem.

GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several
peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or
TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system.
Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64
servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.
