OpenAFS Development

Sine Nomine Associates offers development services for OpenAFS.


Compatibility Testing and Development
Sine Nomine Associates provides services to test compatibility between OpenAFS and other infrastructure software (for example, Linux distributions such as SLES), and will implement source code fixes to any incompatibilities that might be discovered.

Custom Features
Sine Nomine Associates has more than a decade of experience in enhancing OpenAFS to meet the growing needs of the user community. We develop features fully compatible with OpenAFS, so they can be included upstream in the mainline source tree. Some features Sine Nomine Associates has developed include:

  • Usermode openAFS Client
  • Dynamic Vcache Allocation
  • Demand Attached File Server
  • Limitations on Server Keepalives
  • OpenAFS over WAN Optimizations
  • File Prefetch
  • OpenAFS / XEN Integration
