Abstract:

The last few years have seen an explosion in the research and development of distributed file systems. Existing systems provide a limited degree of network transparency, with researchers generally arguing that full network transparency is unachievable. Attempts to understand and address these arguments have been limited by a lack of understanding of the range of possible solutions to transparency issues and a lack of knowledge of the ways in which file systems are used.
