Abstract

Network file systems provide access to data in a networked environment. If such systems operate in a client-server (C/S) mode, e.g., NFS (Network File System) or SMB (Server Message Block), issues concerning the scalability, the presence of a single point of failure, and fault tolerance emerge. Scalability issues, such as coping with an increasing number of clients, need to be addressed, since bandwidth on the server side may be limited and expensive. Peer-to-peer (P2P) systems are, in contrast to C/S systems, fault-tolerant, robust, and scalable. Distributed file systems based on P2P networks can help to avoid such problems. Besides, P2P systems are self-organizing, requiring less management, thus reducing maintenance costs.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
