Introduction to Distributed Systems
Can any one see a potential weakness in this design?
Students will build a real file system by using the tool of FUSE toolkit. Each client host will run a copy of yfs. Each yfs will create a file system visible to applications on the same machine, and FUSE will forward application file system operations to yfs. All the yfs instances will store file system data in a single shared “extent” server, so that all client machines will see a single shared file system. (Discuss the features of this design? Scalability, Reliability?）
