The Network File System (NFS) is a client/server application that allows a remote host to view, and if necessary store and update files on a remote computer similar to local storage. This application has a simple design, easy installation and configuration due to which consumers are increasingly adopting this system. Network file system is a distributed file system protocol similar to several distributed file system standards for network-attached storage (NAS). Network file system, like many other protocols, is built on the open network computing remote procedure call (ONC RPC) system. It follows an open standard procedure, allowing the user to implement the protocol. Network file system incorporates a remote procedurecalls (RPC) to route requests between clients and servers.
Network File System allows the user or system administrator to access and update the whole or a portion of a file system on a server and enables system administrators to combine resources on a centralized servers on the network. The portion of the file system that is mounted can be accessed by clients according to the authorization assigned to each file (read-only or read-write).
Huge amount of data generation due to advancements in business and workflow processes such as cloud and video surveillance services, expansion of IoT ecosystem in storage systems and network connection, demand for central management of storage services, and increased network traffic are some major factors driving the growth of network file system market. Moreover factors such as adoption of big data, increaseing investments in storage technologies are also resulting in the growth of this market.
However, factors such as data security issues, and performance limitations during heavy factor traffic hinder the growth of network file system market.
