201 - Impact of Google File System, Colossus, Facebook and Hadoop on the industry

Season 5, episode 201
7 min / Published

During the last 2 decades, Google File System had a huge impact of the storage industry inviting several companies to imagine and design pretty similar distributed file system solutions clearly inspired by GFS. We had also Facebook with f4 and Haystack, of course Hadoop and HDFS, plus a myriad of several open source projects and products. I tried in this episode to rapidly cover each of them, I count more than 10 file system instances. I'm sure you know some of them and at the same time I'm also pretty sure you will discover some new names. Enjoy your listening.
