Description Niels de Vos 2012-07-16 09:20:21 EDT
The description of "Distributed File System" on page 13 (http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Storage/2.0/html-single/Administration_Guide/index.html#chap-Administration_Guide-storage_concepts) explains what a networked filesystem is. The "distributed file system" should point out that the data from the filesystem is spread over multiple servers/bricks.
Comment 1 Divya 2012-09-04 07:07:20 EDT
Hi Niels,

Revised version is as follows:

"A file system that allows multiple clients to concurrently access data spread across multiple servers/bricks in a trusted storage pool. Sharing data is fundamental to all distributed file system."

Do let me know if you have any further comments before I update the guide with the revised version.

Comment 2 Niels de Vos 2012-09-04 11:41:20 EDT
"Sharing data is fundamental to all distributed file system." is not really clear in this context. The most important part of a "distributed filesystem" is that the data is stored/retrieved from multiple servers/bricks. Maybe you can write if like something as

"Data sharing among multiple locations is fundamental to all distributed file system."

Comment 3 Divya 2012-09-13 08:16:49 EDT
Updated Distributed File System description based on Niels suggestion. Updated guide is available at: http://documentation-devel.engineering.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Storage/2.0/html/Administration_Guide/chap-Administration_Guide-storage_concepts.html
