Jump to: navigation, search

Mosaic Storage (MosaStore) is a highly configurable scavenged storage system: the system is designed to harness unused storage space from network-connected machines to build a high-performance, yet low cost datastore that can be easily configured for optimal performance in different environments, security requirements, and application data access patterns. MosaStore aggregates distributed storage resources: storage space as well as the I/O throughput and reliability of the participating machines. MosaStore is a continuation of FreeLoader project
