I am happy to announce the General Availability of Gluster 3.6 and 3.7
for CentOS 6 on x86_64. These packages are following the upstream
Gluster Community releases, with one minor update for each version per

Users of CentOS 6 can now simply install Gluster with only these two

  # yum install centos-release-gluster
  # yum install glusterfs-server

The centos-release-gluster content comes from the
centos-release-gluster37 package delivered via CentOS Extras repos. This
contains all the metadata and dependancy information, needed to install
Gluster 3.7.

For people looking at running Gluster 3.6, there is the
centos-release-gluster36 package. In order to get this version,
substitute the step-1 mentioned above with:

  # yum install centos-release-gluster36

We have a quickstart guide specifically built around the packages are
available now, it makes for a good introduction to Gluster and will help
get you started in just a few simple steps, this quick start is
