Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PROVIDING A UNIFIED STORAGE SYSTEM THAT SUPPORTS FILE/OBJECT DUALITY
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR FOURNIR UN SYSTÈME DE STOCKAGE UNIFIÉ QUI PREND EN CHARGE UNE DUALITÉ FICHIER/OBJET
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and systems that permit file protocols and object protocols to co-exist using a file namespace and an object namespace in a unified storage system are disclosed. Data stored in the unified storage system are file-objects that preserve the behaviors expected by both file clients and object clients.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes qui permettent à des protocoles de fichier et à des protocoles d'objet de coexister à l'aide d'un espace de nom de fichier et d'un espace de nom d'objet dans un système de stockage unifié. Des données stockées dans le système de stockage unifié sont des fichiers-objets qui préservent les comportements attendus à la fois par des clients de fichier et des clients d'objet.
