Vision

A stackable virtual file system built on .Net Framework. It provides a set of interfaces abstracting the general file system operations, and a set of built in libraries implement the interfaces to provide the services like transactions, cache, encryption, etc.,

Demo

A web application demonstrating photo management using SimpleFS and its transactions service.

Applications

What is a stackable virtual file system can do?
  1. Allows users operate a file system without the awareness of the actual implementation;
  2. Enable additional capabilities on existing file system seamlessly;

Storage Providers

By implementing the interfaces, this distribution can provide various storage means. Users can switch to different storage systems transparently; and various file systems can inter-operate with each other seamlessly as if they are working on the same file system.

Next Release
