The Open Group XNFS offers a complete solution to transparent file access between open system-compliant systems, through the XNFS protocols for interoperability, and The Open Group XSI interfaces for application/user portability (as identified in several XNFS appendixes).
Description

Details

This standard is aligned with Sun's NFS Version 3, and incorporates the Sun WebNFS™ extensions. The process of accessing remote files and directories as though they were part of the local file system hierarchy is commonly known as Transparent File Access (TFA). The most widely used heterogeneous TFS architecture is the Network File System (NFS), originally developed by Sun Microsytems. The Open Group XNFS offers a complete solution to transparent file access between open system-compliant systems, through the XNFS protocols for interoperability, and The Open Group XSI interfaces for application/user portability (as identified in several XNFS appendixes).
