Gluster and I cash out!

05 Oct 2011 - On Caltrain somewhere between Mountain View and San Francisco

My last job was at Gluster, for the most part I enjoyed my time there, a good team working on a great project. Today it was announced that Gluster has been sold to Red Hat, a fantastic place for the GlusterFS to land. RedHat already has a lot of experience with Gluster, the RedHat sponsored HekaFS project is based on GlusterFS. Hopefully RedHat will add some engineering might to the project and we can see some long awaited features finally ship.

On a personal note this is my first successful exit from a startup after time at CMGI, AltaVista, and MyWay, so go me!
