The Global File System : A File System for Shared Disk Storage

  title={The Global File System : A File System for Shared Disk Storage},
  author={Steven R. Soltis and Grant Erickson and Kenneth W. Preslan and Matthew T. O’Keefe and Thomas Ruwart},
In this paper we present a new storage architecture for clust ers that creates a shared memory of disk storage that is uniformly accessible to all cluster clients , scales to large capacity, and provides very high performance and connectivity. The cluster structure r esembles a symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) in that clients (processors) can access disk data (mem ory) across a local area network like Fibre Channel (a bus or other interconnection network). All clients can see and access the same… CONTINUE READING
