We have proposed and implemented a new Grid-Oriented Storage (GOS) architecture [F. Wang et al., 2007], in which a disk drive or disk array with an electronic board connects it directly to the grid. GOS products fit the thin-server categorization, with re-developed and simplified operating system, and can accelerate tenfold the access to data on the Internet/Grid. Best of all, this platform requires no changes in the way users work with their Media/Web/Office/Database applications since it conforms to the existing IT infrastructures (POSIX). The developed GOS-FS protocol is the first of its kind worldwide and a RFC (Request for Comments) is now being drafted in an attempt to include it in the Internet Protocol suite.
