In computer science, global file system is an often distributed virtual file system built on a set of local file systems to provide transparent access to multiple, potentially distributed, systems.[1] A global file system has the same properties such as blocking interface, no buffering etc. but guarantees that the same path name corresponds to the same object on all computers deploying the filesystem.
