    Better than NFS


    I have been using NFS for sharing directories and files between my linux server. Somehow I am not totally happy with the performance of the NFS.

    Is there something better than NFS. I did like to know if there is any, so that I can experiment with the same.

    Thanks in advance

    From kernel help page for Coda

    Coda is an advanced network file system, similar to NFS in that it enables you to mount file systems of a remote server and access them with regular Unix commands as if they were sitting on your hard disk. Coda has several advantages over NFS: support for disconnected operation (e.g. for laptops), read/write server replication, security model for authentication and encryption, persistent client caches and write back caching.
