The main aim of a distributed file system (DFS) is to allow users of physically distributed computers to share data and storage resources by using a common file system. DFS consists of multiple software components that are on multiple computers, but run as a single system._ The power of distributed computing can clearly be seen in some of the most ubiquitous of modern applications: the Internet search engines. These use massive amounts of distributed computing to discover and index as much of the Web as possible. There have been many projects focused on network computing that have designed and implemented distributed file systems with different architectures and functionalities. In this paper, we discuss about Echo File System and its availability.
