The Cedar File System

David K. Gifford, Roger M. Needham, and Michael D. Schroeder


The Cedar File System (CFS) is a workstation file system that provides access to both a workstation’s local disk and to remote file servers via a single hierarchical name space. CFS supports a group of cooperating programmers by allowing them to both manage local naming environments and to share consistent versions of collections of software.
