A synchronous file server for distributed file systems

Broom, Bradley M


There is currently an enormous performance differential, as much as a factor of ten, between the write performance of local file systems and that of distributed file systems, such as the popular NFS [1]. Moreover, the underlying cause of this performance gap is such that as disks with faster transfer rates, or as multiple disks in parallel, are used, this performance differential can only increase. The performance differential is often attributed to the stateless nature of the distributed file...[Show more]
