NFS protocol

Developed by SUN, the Network File System (NFS) protocol is used to share mainstream heterogeneous file systems. In a network environment, the NFS provides the distributed file service for file sharing clients or servers.
NFS helps users to solve this problem. NFS works based on client/server architecture. A server provides other computers with file system access, and clients access the shared file systems. NFS enables clients running a variety of operating systems to share files over a network. NFS allows users to centrally store data in the storage system. With NFS, users can access remote file systems in the same way as accessing local files over a network, reducing local disk space required.
The NFS protocol is applicable to the file share in the Linux system.
