Google Inc. developed the Google File System (GFS), a scalable distributed file system (DFS), to meet the company’s growing data processing needs. GFS offers fault tolerance, dependability, scalability, availability, and performance to big networks and connected nodes. GFS is made up of a number of storage systems constructed from inexpensive commodity hardware parts. The search engine, which creates enormous volumes of data that must be kept, is only one example of how it is customized to meet Google’s various data use and storage requirements.
