Download Andrew File System is a distributed file system that enables co-operating hosts (clients and servers) to efficiently share file system resources across both local area and wide area networks. It is based on a distributed file system originally developed at the Information Technology Center at Carnegie-Mellon University that was called the Andrew File System. According to TCS, AFS scales better than NFS. It performs well in small and very large installations, provides excellent performance on wide-area configuration and security based on Kerberos mutual authentication.
