Global File Store (GFS) is a pervasive computing oriented file storage system. It puts forward an idea - put all files on the Internet. There are 3 features associated with GFS: massive storage, high performance and mobile computing support. The approach to construct GFS is to implement a layer on top of existing heterogeneous file systems. The above features are realized by means of multiple namespace, extensive use of caching and replication, and highly scalable architecture. The system is in the stage of prototype development
