ScaTeFS - A distributed and parallel file system
The NEC Scalable Technology File System (ScaTeFS) is a distributed and parallel file system designed for large-scale HPC systems requiring large capacity. To realize load balancing and scale-out, all typical basic functions of a file system (read/write operation, file/directory generation, etc.) are distributed to multiple IO servers uniformly since ScaTeFS does not need a master server for managing the entire file system such as a metadata server. Therefore, the throughput of the entire system increases, and parallel I/O processing can be used for large files.
