Facebook runs several storage platforms at scale, one of them being GlusterFS - a distributed POSIX filesystem that runs well on commodity hardware. These systems can be challenging to run reliably at scale. As the amount of data, I/O rate, and number of clients go up, both problem diagnosis and system maintenance activities become increasingly difficult. In this talk, we'll talk about the tools and techniques that we use to administer and debug large distributed filesystems and show how others can leverage these techniques in their own environments.


David Hasson

Production Engineer, Facebook Inc.
David works on the POSIX Storage team at Facebook. The team maintains GlusterFS at Facebook and also runs some proprietary storage technologies at scale. Previous to Facebook, David has worked at EMC/Isilon and in research computing at UCLA.

Kevin Vigor

Software Engineer, Facebook
Kevin is currently employed at Facebook working on the Gluster distributed filesystem and surrounding ecosystem. He was previously employed at Fusion-IO working on high-performance (and sadly proprietary) linux block storage drivers. Significant experience presenting to engineering... Read More →
