Auristor/AFS File System Overview

AFS is a distributed network file system.

Secure, Redundant AFS/Auristor File System Services

F iles that are physically stored on many different AFS servers can be accessed as if they were in a single directory (or virtual drive) on a local computer.

This allows a user on any AFS computer at any remote site (such as a computer lab) to access files in a unified and easily identifiable way.

AFS allows you to access your personal files from any Unity lab computer. In most cases, AFS directories function just like any other Unix file system. You will need to use standard Unix commands to create subdirectories and to move, copy, and delete files.
