Distributed File System Vs. NFS ZDFS


Written By:

The network file system is an open protocol that handles messaging formats of the client and server that should communicate under the Distributed File System (DFS).

The Network File System (NFS) allows third parties to write their implementations and create their own version of the network file system.

Thus, Zeeve Distributed File System (ZDFS) holds its own version of the Network File System (NFS) named InterPlanetary File System (IPFS).

Let’s start the article to understand it in detail –

Distributed File System (DFS)

A Distributed File System (DFS) is a data storage that allows users to access files such as documents, images, audio files, video files, etc., from their shared storage. Few servers handle multiple clients under the Distributed File System (DFS). The server stores the data on the central disk, which helps the client collect the data.

The stored data on the central disk can be accessed by the client remotely with the help of the Distributed File System (DFS).

Further, the data cannot be shared on the local disks because it will become inconsistent across the network as the clients perform regular updates on the local disks.

But when the data is consistent, it could be shared with all the clients without confusion. Also, the data can be backed up quickly even though the data is residing on a few servers. Moreover, if the data remains on the central disk, it helps to increase security.

Network File System (NFS)

The reason behind developing a Network File System (NFS) was to recover crashes that may happen either from a server or from the client’s end. Thus, there was a stateless communication protocol between the client and the server.

There is no client data stored on the server. Whenever the client sends a request, that request holds every information the server requires for fetching the data. And there is no state shared between the client and server. Thus, if the server crashes while responding, it loses the file ID of the request.

The stateless request-response cycles are implemented in the Network File System. Here, the server holds no information from the client, as every response is treated as a new one from the server.

Moreover, if the request from the client crashes, a new request can be sent, and the server will discard the old request which was crashed from the client’s end.

Zeeve Distributed File System (ZDFS)

Zeeve Distributed File System (ZDFS) – Zeeve Distributed File System (ZDFS) is an easy and secure integrable decentralized storage space. ZDFS provides decentralized storage for your digital assets, NFTs, and personal records.

Web3 infrastructure company like Zeeve can solve the problem of decentralized storage for digital assets.

InterPlanetary File System (IPFS)

InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a storage network designed for numerous purposes like accessing files, websites, storage, data, and applications.

The content can be accessed from anywhere in the world, either for storing or relaying information or for both. IPFS uses content address rather than location address to find what you are searching for.

InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) makes the process easier for Zeeve Distributed File System (ZDFS) like Network File System (NFS) does for Distributed File System (DFS).

Use cases of Zeeve Distributed File System (ZDFS)

1. NFT Marketplaces

The off-chain NFT data can be stored on IPFS, which can benefit the NFT marketplace users to keep their NFT secure and decentralized.

2. Tokenized Real-World Assets

The Zeeve Distributed File System (ZDFS) users can securely store tokenized real-world assets.

3. Enterprise Documentation

The ideal solution for the decentralized storing of enterprise documents is Zeeve Distributed File System (ZDFS) because it is reliable and secure compared to the centralized file systems.

4. Public Repositories

For public Repositories like storing sensitive data related to public records, intellectual property, etc., the only solution is Zeeve Distributed File System (ZDFS).
