XtreemFS is a parallel file system that is ready for Grids.
XtreemFS is simple to setup as it does not use any kernel modules; it's easy to integrate with clients for Linux, OS X, Windows and Hadoop.
XtreemFS is also a parallel, object-based file system. You can stripe your files across many storage servers for high-performance parallel access. The stripe width can be configured per file.
XtreemFS can run as part of federated Grid environments with X.509 authentication and GridSSL support. It can stripe files within your cluster and can replicate your data across clusters.
This allows you to have high-performance access within your cluster and to share your data in your virtual organization.
XtreemFS' replication is fault-tolerant. A broken hard drive or unhealthy storage server does not result in data loss or even degraded service quality.
This matters if you have 10 or 1000s of machines, as your jobs finish without interruptions and you can delay repairs to whenever you have time.
There are several ways to evaluate XtreemFS yourself. We provide a demo installation, VM images, packages for all Linux distributions.Try XtreemFS now »
