DAFS protocol finalized

— 3:17 AM on September 13, 2001

ZDNet is reporting that the DAFS (Direct Access File System) protocol is ready to go.

By bypassing the operating system, DAFS enables faster reading and writing of files over a network, giving it appeal to network storage computers makers such as Network Appliance, which in a regulatory filing Tuesday said it might be able to release its first DAFS-enabled products in early 2002.
An official announcement is expected on Monday.
