Radiant Data Launches 64-bit Linux HA Replicating File System
Available since 2003 for 32-bit Linux systems, PeerFS uses a multiple-sources and multiple-targets replicating file system to try to deliver seamless, consistent access to data.If you need your data to be available in all your officeseven if the central office goes up in smoke one dayRadiant Datas new PeerFS 4.0, which now supports multiple 64-bit Linuxes, might be just what you need. Available since 2003 for 32-bit Linux systems, PeerFS uses a multiple-sources and multiple-targets replicating file system to try to deliver seamless, consistent access to data. PeerFS enables simultaneous transactions on multiple servers in multiple locations, with separate but identical data stores that are continuously synchronized using a peer-to-peer approach. To maintain quick response, READ operations are performed locally, without tying up network bandwidth. Only the changed bytes within a file are sent over the network as WRITE operations keep the file systems in sync. In the event of a storage failure, PeerFS maintains HA (high availability) by providing a seamless failover to alternative data stores.
To make sure someone isnt copying your data, PeerFS 4.0 provides 256-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encrypted connections. The AES link is configurable for each endpoint.
