Diamond Systems announced that it has originated a new, mezzanine-style expansion standard for SBCs (single board computers), COMs (computer-on-modules) and other embedded products.

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.10) to one large storage server (distributed storage) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 12.10 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.
