MogileFS distributed filesystem

MogileFS is our open source distributed filesystem.

Some of the advantages are

  • No Single point Failure
  • Automatic file replication
  • Better than RAID
  • Shared-Nothing — MogileFS doesn’t depend on a pricey SAN with shared disks. Every machine maintains its own local disks.
  • No RAID required — Local disks on MogileFS storage nodes can be in a RAID, or not. It’s cheaper not to, as RAID doesn’t buy you any safety that MogileFS doesn’t already provide.
