DFSgc: Distributed File System for Multipurpose Grid Applications and Cloud Computing
Grid Computing currently needs the support for managing huge quantities of storage. Most of Grid deployments only provide local storage support and lack essential features as decentralization of the file catalog. This paper explains the design of a distributed file system whose aim is to provide a virtual storage for multipurpose applications. A complete distributed catalogue system avoids faults so the entire catalog of files is available all the time. The idea is to allow users and applications to manage files like a local storage system hiding the physical addressing. An intelligent replication system uses heuristic techniques to bring data closer to the Grid applications so the applications avoid investing time in transferences.
