Abstract:

Abstract: "Future computing systems may involve thousands of networked general-purpose computers, without shared memory or shared devices. The 'operating system' for such a configuration must be completely distributed, and it must tolerate the random disappearance of nodes, possibly with obsolete control information and/or data. Traditional file systems are not equipped to satisfy these requirements. We present a 'holographic' file system (HFS) for concurrent data retrieval in a computer system with a large number of disks (although it is probable that most nodes will be diskless).

In such a file system it is possible to operate on a file by simultaneously utilizing many (or all) of the disks, since the file system is organized to take advantage of the multiplicity of equipment, rather than limiting access to a single disk for each file, as in most existing file systems. The main advantages of the HFS are a speed-up in data retrieval related to the number of disks, and improved availability by allowing access to parts of a file even when other parts of that file are not accessible."
