YFS is a Software Defined Storage solution for secure private, public and hybrid cloud storage deployments. YFS 1.0 clients and servers are dual protocol stack providing next generation file system capabilities while maintaining backward compatibility with IBM AFS 3.6 and OpenAFS clients and servers. This talk will highlight the enhanced capabilities of YFS 1.0 vs OpenAFS 1.6.5 including the new high performance IPv6-capable RX implementation, security improvements, improved Windows / OSX application compatibility, Year 2038 safety, and other protocol improvements.
