Community Forum > Newest QuantaStor build and CephFS

Hi all,

the newest build of QuantaStor supports now CephFS and NFS and SMB. What's now the recommended solution for a Scale-Out file server? Ist it GlusterFS like in the past or is it now CephFS?

Kind Regards

Hi Stefan,
The GlusterFS style scale-out NAS is still available but we're in the process of deprecating support for it when we get to QS 6.0 next summer. When you login to the web UI for the new QS 5.4 just press the Getting Started button in the toolbar and it will walk you through setting up a CephFS based scale-out NAS config. Note that NFS support is limited to exporting the whole pool/fs in 5.4 but we'll be fixing that up soon as we move forward with Ceph Nautilus.
