Anticipating terascale and petascale HPC demands, NFSv4 architects are designing pNFS, a standard extension that supports parallel access to cluster file systems, object stores, and massive SANs.

CITI's GridNFS project integrates NFSv4 into the ecology of Grid middleware: Globus GSI support, name space construction and management, fine-grained access control with foreign user support, and high performance secure file system access for jobs scheduled in an indeterminate future. In this talk, I will describe NFSv4 protocol features that support petascale data management along with implementation experiences.
