Virtual filesystem directory service1

Virtual Filesystem Directory Service

  • Enables the realization of a Grid File System with a uniform, global, hierarchical namespace

  • Hierarchically organizes file data sources (network file systems accessible through standard protocols such as NFS, CIFS) as well as any abstract data services supporting file access

  • VFDS can render itself as a data service

  • Permits distributed namespace ownership within and across organizations without compromising autonomy

Virtual filesystem directory service summaries

Virtual Filesystem Directory Service - Summaries

  • Enables a virtualized, hierarchical namespace that federates file systems, individual files as well as other abstract data services supporting file access semantics

  • An informational document was published at GGF8 to facilitate discussions and standardization

  • A reference implementation is being done at IBM Almaden

  • Engaging NFSv4 workgroup for possible NFS realization

  • Data service abstraction of VFDS is being considered
