Comparative Analysis of Andrew Files System and Hadoop Distributed File System

Monali Mavani
Abstract—Sharing of resources is the main goal of distributed system. The sharing of stored information is the most important aspect of distributed resource sharing. A file system was originally developed to provide convenient programming interface to disk storage for the centralized system. With the advent of distributed systems distributed storage has become very prominent. A distributed file system enables users to store and access remote files exactly as they do local ones, allowing users to access files from any computer on a network. The objective of this paper is to compare very first open source wide distribution of distributed file system called Andrew file system and the latest widely used distributed file system -Hadoop distributed file system. Parameters which are taken for comparison are Design Goals, Processes, File management, Scalability, Protection, Security, cache management replication etc.

Index Terms—Andrew file system, Google file system, Hadoop distributed file system.
