Check out the Isilon multiprotocol series

There’s a new series in town: the Multiprotocol Concepts series on the EMC Community Network (ECN) Isilon community. If you’ve ever wondered how OneFS handles multiprotocol data access or even what it is, this series will be a great place to start learning all about it. The first blog post introduces basic multiprotocol concepts, setting the stage for subsequent posts that explore those concepts in more depth. We’ll post new series topics approximately every two weeks. Topics include:

  • Data access tokens, also known as unified access tokens
  • Directory services
  • User mapping
  • ID mapping
  • On-disk identity
  • OneFS storage of file and share permissions
  • POSIX permissions
  • Access control list (ACL) policies
  • Verifying your multiprotocol environment and some basic troubleshooting

I’ll list the series posts here as they become available. So take a look at the multiprotocol series. And please let us know what you think!
