MooseFS (MFS) is a fault tolerant, highly performing, scaling-out, network distributed file system. It spreads data over several physical servers which are visible to the user as one resource. For standard file operations MooseFS mounted with FUSE acts as other Unix-alike file systems:

* A hierarchical structure (directory tree)
* Stores POSIX file attributes (permissions, last access and modification times)
Supports special files (block and character devices, pipes and sockets)
* Symbolic links (file names pointing to target files, not necessarily on MooseFS) and hard links (different names of files which refer to the same data on MooseFS)
* Access to the file system can be limited based on IP address and/or password

Recent changes:


  • dynamically expanding disk space by attaching new computers/disks
  • higher reliability (data can be stored in several copies on separate computers)
  • possibility of storing deleted files for a defined period of time
  • possibility of creating snapshots of files, which means a coherent copy of the whole file, even while the file is being written/accessed
