Sun Cluster Overview for Solaris OS

File System Support

Because one of the inherent properties of clustered systems is shared resources, a cluster requires a file system that addresses the need for files to be shared coherently. The Sun Cluster file system enables users or applications to access any file on any node of the cluster by using the remote or local standard UNIX APIs. If an application is moved from one node to another node, no change is required for the application to access the same files. No changes need to be made to existing applications to fully utilize the cluster file system.
