Red Hat Storage (née Gluster) has recruited open source experts at Facebook, OpenStack and Eucalyptus for an independent GlusterFS advisory board meant to push the open source GlusterFS project and foster contributions and participation from third-party sys admins, developers and ISVs.
Board members include chairman John Mark Walker, GlusterFS Community Manager at Red Hat; GlusterFS project co-founder Anand Babu (AB) Periasamy; Facebook storage engineer Richard Wareing; Citrix Xen engineer and OpenStack core contributor Ewan Mellor; Citrix CloudStack community manager and Fedora advisory board member David Nalley; Picture Marketing senior system administrator Louis Zuckerman; Ed Wyse Beauty Products senior system administrator Joe Julian; Red Hat Filesystem engineer and HekaFS project founder Jeff Darcy, and Eucalyptus community VP Greg DeKoenigsberg.
Walker said, "We have established this advisory board to help ensure the future success of GlusterFS and facilitate communication between community members and the project. Each of these board members was selected based on their past contributions to GlusterFS or their standing in related communities."
Examples of items that will be voted on soon include approval or modifications of the board charter, approval of new initiatives for GlusterFS and approval of release schedules and roadmaps.
