Dell’s Fluid File System (FluidFS) is an easy-to-use solution that provides features for effectively sharing information with both SMB and NFS clients. This solution helps consolidate Windows and UNIX/Linux file serving functionality into a single system that provides storage efficiency, high performance, and scalability to petabytes. This paper describes the network components that interface with FluidFS to provide a manageable, secure solution for sharing files in both SMB and NFS domains, and discusses best practices for deploying systems where both protocols need to access files simultaneously.
