The author describes the design and prototype testing of a large UNIX-based file server, the File Manager. The primary design aim for the File Manager was to provide network file service at an attractive cost/performance ratio. Economical storage as well as fast, concurrent file transfers to and from the server were essential. It was felt that this goal was best achievable through the selection of multi-vendor components. Particularly notable and/or troublesome integration issues are discussed.<>
