Sun sees big future for NFS v.4 in Linux

Author: JT Smith

From SearchEnterpriseLinux: "If Sun Microsystems' dream comes true, the Linux community will embrace the latest version of its Network File System protocol. Sun's director of Solaris Data Technology Jon Lee is championing the message that Sun NFS, which began as a workgroup file sharing solution, fills enterprise Linux's need for a scalable Internet file access protocol. He is sure that NFS v.4 does that job so well that it will become the file-sharing standard on the Linux operating system. Lee and David Brittle, Solaris Data Technology senior software engineering manager, outlined their company's plan to promote implementation of NFS on Linux."
