 Network File System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Network File System (NFS) is a protocol originally developed by Sun Microsystems in 1984 and defined in RFCs 1094, 1813, and 3530 (obsoletes 3010), as a distributed file system which allows a computer to access files over a network as easily as if they were on its local disks.
The term "network file system" is also often used as a generic term — see file system for other examples.
NFS and ONC were prominent in the network computing war between Sun Microsystems and Apollo Computer, and later the UNIX wars between ATandT and Sun on one side, and Digital Equipment, HP, and IBM on the other.

 NFS (Network File System)
A system, developed by Sun to allow file sharing across a network.
Originally developed for Unix systems, it has been extended to run on and with other network and desktop operating systems.
Using the Transport Independent Remote Procedure Call protocol as its underlying communications protocol, NFS lets clients read and write remote files as if they were stored on a local hard drive.

 Connected: An Internet Encyclopedia - NFS Protocol Overview
The Network File System (NFS), developed by Sun Microsystems, is the de facto standard for file sharing among UN*X hosts.
For example, NFS has no operation to open a file, since this would require the server to store state information (that a file is open; what its file descriptor is; the next byte to read; etc).
This file handle is an unique, immutable identifier, usually an i-node number, or disk block address.

 Local and Distributed File System Performance
The Network File System, originally developed by Sun, is one of the most common examples of a distributed file system.
NFS is a simple distributed file system, with no replication of data, no globally coherent namespace, poor caching and performance, and poor concurrency management.
Recent systems, including xFS [1] and Zebra [6], have emphasized striping of data across multiple servers on the premise that network performance is improving more rapidly than disk performance.

The first file servers were developed in the 1970s and Sun's Network File System (NFS) became the first widely used distributed file system after its introduction in 1985.
A DFS is a file system whose clients, servers, and storage devices are dispersed among the machines of a distributed system or intranet.
A DFS can be implemented as part of a distributed operating system, or alternatively, by a software layer whose task is to manage the communication between conventional operating systems and file systems.

Solaris ZFS is a copy-on-write file system, and thus the on-disk structure of Solaris ZFS is always consistent.

 distributed file system - a Whatis.com definition - see also: DFS
Sun Microsystems' Network File System (NFS), Novell NetWare, Microsoft's Distributed File System, and IBM/Transarc's DFS are some examples of distributed file systems.
Ideally, a distributed file system organizes file and directory services of individual servers into a global directory in such a way that remote data access is not location-specific but is identical from any client.
Distributed file systems typically use file or database replication (distributing copies of data on multiple servers) to protect against data access failures.

 Free, dependable IDS InfoWorld Review 2002-01-24 By Mandy Andress
Continuiing on its plan to offer Solaris OS technologies via open source, Sun Microsystems on Thursday is releasing the ZFS (Zettabyte File System) file system for Solaris.
The kernel audit module wraps critical system calls such as mkdir, open, and execve and gathers information about the process and the user that executed the call.
Network-based IDSes such as Snort have been available for some time, but the host-based approach offers certain advantages, such as the capability to detect attacks that network-based solutions sometimes miss and greater flexibility for fine-tuning which activities should be monitored.

 Spring operating system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Spring used two sorts of file systems, a local file system which was similar to most common Unix systems, as well as a caching file system for network devices.
Spring was an experimental microkernel-based object oriented operating system developed at Sun Microsystems in the early 1990s.
Spring was also more cleanly separated from the operating systems it would host, divorcing it from its Unix roots and even allowing several OS's to be run at the same time.

Sun's products include computer servers and workstations based on its own SPARC and AMD's Opteron processors, the Solaris and Linux operating systems, the NFS network file system, and the Java platform.
Sun was an early advocate of Unix-based of networked computing, promoting TCP/IP and especially NFS, as reflected in the company's motto "The Network Is The Computer".
In the late-1990s, as Sun's workstations were lagging in performance when compared to that of their competitors and especially to Wintel Personal Computers, the company successfully transformed itself to a vendor of large-scale Symmetric multiprocessing servers.
