In this video, Kevin Dankwardt discusses file sytems on the network. We discuss NFS in particular and he demonstrates how to configure an NFS server and how to mount from NFS.
- [Instructor] All right, so let's talk about…Network File Systems for a couple minutes here.…So we mean a file system that resides on…one or more servers…and is remotely mounted to a client.…That's different from a remote lock device.…There's a couple different choices…and they have issues to consider,…security issues, stuff encrypted when it moves…over the network, for example.…And performance issues where the bottle necks.…
What about locking of files…to make sure things stay consistent.…And what about scalability?…How many of these can you have at a time?…So, when we talk about…file systems on a network,…we have a single server sort of thing…and we've got file systems distributed…with redundancy across a network…and we've got clustering.…In this chapter, we're going to talk about…really just a couple of choices…for file system coming from one server…and you just mount that into your tree.…
Later on we'll talk about distributed and cluster…sort of file systems.…So, NFS is the unix-y way of doing…network file systems.…
