Distributed File System
Recently, IAIT introduced a new file system called DFS to supplement the AFS file system. The DFS client is built into Windows XP which makes it easier to access than AFS. DFS provides file space for campus users and academic departments, however it cannot be used to store web pages. In addition to this, the institute's software repository is also located on DFS.
Faculty, staff and students have 500MB of storage space allocated on DFS. Requests for an increase in file storage may be submitted via email to http://email@example.com.
