gdeploy release 2.0

These are gdeploy 2.0 release notes. Lists the features and changes introduced in 2.0.

What is gdeploy?

gdeploy is a tool to set-up and deploy GlusterFS using Ansible over multiple hosts. gdeploy is written to be modular, it can be used to deploy any software depending on how the configuration file is written.

gdeploy can be used to set-up bricks for GlusterFS, create a GlusterFS volume and mount it on one or more clients from an ansible installed machine. The framework reads a configuration file and applies on the hosts listed in the configuration file.

You can find instructions here.

What is new in 2.0?

  • Multiple volume support, now one can create multiple volumes in a single configuration file.
  • Adds support to create volume and set volume options in the same section.
  • More developer friendly, now adding a new feature/module is much easier.
  • Support to run shell scripts on remote hosts. gdeploy configuration file allows provision to mention the shell script which will be copied and run on the remote host.
