GlusterFS is a clustered filesystem capable of scaling to several petabytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. GlusterFS is based on a stackable user space design without compromising performance. It allows access via Swift API, SMB, NFSv3, QEMU/KVM, OpenStack Compute, OpenStack Block Storage, Xen, CloudStack, HDFS API, oVirt, and more, all in a unified backend which enables multiple, simultaneous access points to the same data stores.
Zfswatcher is ZFS storage pool monitoring and notification daemon. It periodically inspects the zpool status and sends configurable notifications on status changes such as disk failures. It also controls the disk enclosure LEDs. There is an embedded Web interface for displaying status and logs.
Kvpm is a GUI front end for Linux LVM and GNU parted. LVM2 groups and volumes can be created, removed, and manipulated using most of the options supported by the standard LVM2 tools. Some support for creating and operating on partitions is provided. It also handles creating and mounting filesystems. LVM version 2.02.88 or newer must be installed with the lvm2app library. Only the KDE 4 libraries need to be installed, not the entire desktop, so it my be run from within Gnome, for instance.
