C2Cfs: A Collective Caching Architecture for Distributed File Access
—In this paper we present C2Cfs - a decentralized collective caching architecture for distributed filesystems. C2Cfs diverges from the traditional client-server model and advocates decoupling the consistency management role of the central server from the data serving role. Our design enables multiple clientside caches to share data and efficiently propagate updates via direct client-to-client transfers, while maintaining the standard consistency semantics. We present an NFSv4-based implementation of our architecture, which works with unmodified NFS servers and requires no changes to the protocol. Finally, we evaluate the implementation and demonstrate the performance benefits of decentralized data access enabled by our approach.
