  • 2909 MogileFS in 3 toolboxes
    add to my toolbox

    MogileFS is an open source distributed filesystem. It is similar to GoogleFS and Amazon's S3.

    It allows for building a very robust, distributed file storage system on commodity / cheap hardware.

    MogileFS provides a framework that is, IMO, better than RAID (from an availability standpoint) and it is of course much easier to manage than RAID. Also, much much cheaper than RAID.
