Andrew File System
The OpenAFS Guardians are happy to announce the availability of the second prerelease candidate of OpenAFS 1.8.0.
In "You really should know what the Andrew File System is," a recent article for Network World, News Editor Bob Brown concludes that "AFS is indeed worth knowing about as a foundational technology that paved the way for widely used cloud computing techniques and applications."
Congratulations to the Open AFS creators Mahadev Satyanarayanan, Michael L. Kazar, Robert N. Sidebotham, David A. Nichols, Michael J. West, John H. Howard, Alfred Z. Spector and Sherri M. Nichols, recipients of the ACM Software System Award for developing the Andrew File System (AFS).
Sine Nomine Associates is proud to provide availability of an updated version of our signed OpenAFS MacOS 10 client installer. As with the previously announced version, this is provided as a donation to OpenAFS.org through the OpenAFS Foundation.
