Submission + - GlusterFS, GPL3 Clustered File System, Release 2.0->

Shehjar Tikoo writes: "GlusterFS is a clustered file system that runs on commodity off-the-shelf hardware, delivering multiple times the scalability and performance of conventional storage. The architecture is modular, stackable and kernel-independent, which makes it easy to customize, install, manage and support different operating systems. Multiple storage systems can be clustered together, supporting petabytes of capacity in a single global namespace. Building a configuration of a few hundred terabytes can be accomplished in less than thirty minutes.

GlusterFS 2.0 Release:
GlusterFS v2.0 has gone through a major revamp in design and development since v1.3. Thanks to thousands of initial users who provided us great feedback and bug reports. There are a number of production deployments now. GlusterFS uses existing disk file systems (such as Ext3, XFS, ZFS..) to store your data as regular files and folders. You can restore the data, even after you uninstall GlusterFS. So, give it a try and let us know.

Submission + - Facebook's Ad system is out->

sssk writes: "Facebook today unveiled it's plan for world domination. From the press release: "For the last hundred years media has been pushed out to people, but now marketers are going to be a part of the conversation. And they're going to do this by using the social graph in the same way our users do." Microsoft seems to agree. Will advertising schemes like these drive social networking into oblivion ? That remains to be seen."
