How to design and build an inexpensive distributed file system

This talk describes the basic foundations of distributed file system (DFS) and comparison among different free software solutions. The architectures presented, provide reliable file services in large distributed environment. The session will discuss our experience in this deployment and detailed information on performance, scalability and hardware requirement.

We start by mentioning some of the first attempts of implementing a distributed file system (DFS). Based on this acknowledge of these systems and current trends, we explain how to use traditional solution like Andrew File system (openAFS) and more innovative and "emerging" environment based on MapReduce like Hadoop. We explain advantages and disadvantages, performance and layout on each solutions. We also introduce some Case Studies on implementation and deploy.
