What is LucidLink?
Modified on: Fri, 14 Jul, 2017 at 2:59 PM
LucidLink is a new distributed file system technology that streams data directly from any object store.
This is a distributed streaming file system, purpose built for high latency environments like the Internet, and specifically as a POSIX type of front end for cloud object storage.
We have not seen any other product like this out there. Instead, companies rely on old protocols which were not meant for this kind of environment (NFS, CIFS, SMB), which break down due to latency, and which require re-writing applications or unnatural workarounds.
