A clustered file system is a combination of file system, which is shared by being concurrently mounted on distributed servers. It is not a single server with a set of clients; instead it is a cluster of servers that in well versed combination provide high performance to their clients. It is a transparent medium to the client-just a simple file system, however, the file system software deals with distributing requests to the components of storage cluster.
Clustered File System offers different features like location independent addressing and redundancy which in turn augment the reliability and eliminate the intricacies of other parts in the cluster.
Parallel File System: It is a type of clustered file system that helps in distributing the data across multiple storage nodes in terms of redundancy and performance.
Shared Disk File System: It employ storage area network (SAN)which provide a way to hosts platform to share Fibre Channel Storage, which is traditionally carved into private chunks linked to different hosts. A SAN file system mounts storage only in one node, but linked entire nodes to that storage unit and disseminates block addresses to other nodes.
