XtreemFS is a software that implements striping of files over several storage servers for increased I/O bandwidth and capacity. This is similar to RAID0. Paralell I/O ensures that read/write operations are executed in parallel on the storage servers to exploit the full bandwidth.
Requirements for building XtreemFS:
* Java JDK 1.6+
* GCC / g++
Here are some key features of "XtreemFS":
· Clients and servers can be distributed world-wide. XtreemFS allows you to mount and access your files via the internet from anywhere.
· With XtreemFS you can easily replicate your files across data-centers to reduce network consumption, latency and increase data availability.
· XtreemFS is fully open source and licensed under the GPLv2.
