NFS-Ganesha 2.0.0

This Open Source project provides a NFS (Network File Systems) server running in User Space
NFS-Ganesha is an open source command-line software, a daemon that provides a NFS (Network File Systems) server for Linux and BSD operating systems. It runs completely in User Space.

NFS-Ganesha has been designed with two goals in mind, to provide NFS exports to several namespaces and filesystems, and to provides very large data caches and metadata. It supports the NFS v3, NFS 4.0, NFS 4.1 (including pNFS) protocols.

The software is engineered to use dedicated backend modules called FSAL (File System Abstraction Layer). Among the available FSAL modules, we can mention FSAL/POSIX, FSAL/SNMP, FSAL/PROXY, and FSAL/FUSELIKE.

What's New in This Release:
  • NFSv4.1 support has been greatly improved and now fully supports pNFS I/O operations. This feature makes the power and capacity of clustered and distributed file systems available to clients.
  • NLM state and lock management is unified with NFSv4 state and lock management.
  • Plan 9 (9P) support is much improved. This is the 9P.2000L level protocol.
  • File system backends are now loadable modules. This means that any number of backends and exports via those backends can be configured.
