One problem I have with this, Chuck, is that it presupposes failed capability in prior efforts. Widespread adoption is not a measure of all project success. Many large organizations have used Transarc AFS, then IBM AFS, and now OpenAFS for 15 years now. The problem isn't that a solution eludes the world.

Jeff, can AFS be used to migrate (and/or present) data between (from) existing CIFS shares? Or is it something which needs to be set up from scratch (I suspect the latter).

    Chuck now works for Oracle, and is now deeply embroiled in IT infrastructure.

    Previously, he was with VMware for 2 years, and EMC for 18 years before that, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Vero Beach, FL with his wife and four dogs when he's not traveling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not ever buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
