The Andrew Filesystems (AFS and OpenAFS).

See AboutThesePages.



From http://www.openafs.org/:

What is AFS?

AFS is a distributed filesystem product, pioneered at Carnegie Mellon University and supported and developed as a product by Transarc Corporation (now IBM Pittsburgh Labs). It offers a client-server architecture for file sharing, providing location independence, scalability and transparent migration capabilities for data.

What is OpenAFS?

IBM branched the source of the AFS product, and made a copy of the source available for community development and maintenance. They called the release OpenAFS. It's available from the IBM Open Source site.

There is also an AFS Wiki at http://grand.central.org/twiki/bin/view/AFSLore/.
