I am happy to announce the General Availability of Gluster 5 for CentOS
7 on x86_64. These packages are following the upstream Gluster Community
releases, and will receive monthly bugfix updates.

Gluster 5 is expected to receive updates until the end of October 2019.
The maintanance and release schedule can be found at:

Users of CentOS 7 can now simply install Gluster 5 with only these two

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

The centos-release-gluster package is delivered via CentOS Extras repos.
This contains all the metadata and dependency information, needed to
install Gluster 5. The actual package that will get installed is
centos-release-gluster5. Users of Gluster 4.1 can stay on that release
until June 2019.

Users of Gluster 4.0 and earlier will need to manually upgrade by
uninstalling the centos-release-gluster-legacy package, and replacing it
with either the Gluster 5 or 4.1 version. Additional details about the
upgrade process are linked in the announcement from the Gluster

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

More details about the packages that the Gluster project provides in the
Storage SIG is available in the documentation:

The centos-release-gluster* repositories offer additional packages that
enhance the usability of Gluster itself. Utilities and tools that were
working with previous versions of Gluster are expected to stay working
fine. If there are any problems, or requests for additional tools and
applications to be provided, just send us an email with your
suggestions. The current list of packages that is (planned to become)
available can be found here:

We welcome all feedback, comments and contributions. You can get in
