I created glusterfs instances using Ubuntu TLS AMI. I want my existing instances (Amazon Linux AMI) connect to glusterfs servers.

There is no Amazon Linux folder at the glusterfs's download page:

How could I install glusterfs client to Amazon Linux... Kind regards

Yes that will also do ,give it a try but make sure you test enough before putting it in Production environment.. – Abhishek Anand Amralkar Feb 17 '13 at 19:03
so you would compile it rather than using other rpm packages? – zontragon Feb 17 '13 at 19:11
Every gluster instance I have I compiled on to CentOS 5->6.3, no problems at all, just make sure you install all the dependencies first. – boburob Feb 17 '13 at 19:19
