    GlusterFS was introduced back in 2007, as an open source network-attached storage system that used Ethernet or InfiniBand RDMA to pool together multiple storage volumes into one colossal pool. It became a cloud storage system in 2009, meaning that it added the elasticity and self-service provisioning necessary to qualify for the official "cloud" moniker. And although it was designed for enterprises, that didn't stop some very clever coders from reworking it into a locally-mountable cloud storage store, now called HekaFS.
