I had a course on distributed system in my Engineering curriculum, and
I was really fascinated with the way people use this technology for
work. As my interest grew in this field, I started to read a lot on
this. As a result, while browsing a few pages, I found a link to Google
File System. Honestly, it didn't make any sense to me. Where would
Google deploy this proprietary file system? Or is Google planning to
have an operating system? I decided to have a look at it nonetheless and
here's a quick overview of my findings.
