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."
These presentations are from the April 2016, September 2016, and March 2017 meetings of the Hillgang Group, a Washington DC area mainframe user group.
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).
