In the grand scheme of things, away from our little world of HPC;
Gluster *may* have a much much bigger install base and a more active
developer base than Lustre or GPFS. Googling "lustre+linux (About
1,480,000 results)" vs "gluster+linux (About 147,000 results)"
suggests otherwise :)

Comparing Lustre or GPFS with Gluster is not a helpful exercise I
think. Apples with oranges.....
