The Veritas Cluster File System: Technology and Usage
Optimize utilization, performance, and availability with Symantec's scalable shared file storage infrastructure.
This book describes Symantec’s Veritas Cluster File System (CFS), an
implementation of the cluster architectural model for sharing data among
multiple computers. Based on Symantec’s long-proven Storage Foundation File
System (commonly known as VxFS), CFS is exceptionally scalable, robust, and
high-performing. Building on a solid base of VxFS technology, CFS adds clusterwide
cache coherency, distributed resource control and file system transactions,
and other features that enable scaling and enhance performance and load
balancing across a cluster of application or database servers.
