This webinar discusses the Gluster Virtual Storage Appliance for Xen which packages GlusterFS in a virtual machine container optimized for ease of use with little to no configuration required. The Virtual Appliance seamlessly integrates with existing virtualization environments such as Citrix Xen, allowing you to deploy virtual storage the same way you deploy virtual machines. Deploy on premise to create a private cloud using any certified Xen server hardware platforms and certified storage: JBOD, DAS, or SAN.

  • MIKE:And, absolutely, we want to take your questions throughout the webinar, so let me begin here briefly by reviewing how to ask a question on this particular platform.If you'll note in the upper right hand of your screen, you'll see our control panel. On it you'll see a section called QUESTIONS… click on the Down Arrow and then just type in your question in the available space. You can do this at any time during the webinar and we’ll be responding to as many of them as we can during our the Ask the Experts section.We’ll also be conducting two quick online interactive Polls, for which you'll also use the control panel to provide your answer. No worries! We’ll walk you through this.At the end of the webinar, you'll see a brief survey in your browser window. We’d love your direct feedback so please take a moment then and share your thoughts with us. And for taking a few minutes to fill out the survey, we’ll be selecting at random an attendee who will to win a Jawbone ICON™ headset and they will be notified by email by Friday of this week.While we plan on finishing on time, feel free to submit your questions throughout the webinar. What we can’t answer on air, a Gluster representative will reply to you by the end of this week.Also a copy of today’s webcast will be recorded and all registrants and attendees will receive a thank you email with instructions on how to view the recording on-demand.{{CUE – advance slide to tee up Poll#1)
