Too good to be true?

A grid filesystem with: transparent replication and partial replication, striping, POSIX interface and semantics, checksumming. Open source - GPL - and, unlike some grid "open source projects" we can mention, you can actually download the source. As fast as ext4 for linux kernel build. Planning NFSv4 and/or WebDAV interfaces.

This is the promise of XtreemFS, the filesystem part (but independent part) of XtreemOS, an EU funded project. More on this later in our weekly meetings.
