|This is the LANDisk project page. LANDisk is a serverless network filesystem with a twist -- it can aggregate the disparate space on a network into one (or many) logical block devices. The LANDisk project consists of two components: The backing device which is a LAN Block Device, and a special filesystem, the LAN File System, on top of it to support multiple writers safely. LANDisk has several advantages over other network file systems:
The LANDisk software is a proprietary work for Keene Enterprises, for licensing information see the "Licenses" page.
- It can aggregate disk space from many machines.
- Serverless -- no Single Point of Failure/Success.
- Global cache improves speed and reliability for common data blocks.
- Writes are done through cache so writing is local-disk speed.
- Built-in redundancy is possible.
- Only basic configuration requirements, but advanced configurations are possible.
