  Description     : Scale-out NAS file system

RozoFS aims to provide an open source high performance and high
availability scale out storage software appliance for intensive disk IO
data center scenario. RozoFS provides an easy way to scale to petabytes
storage but using erasure coding it was designed to provide very high
availability levels with optimized raw capacity usage on heterogenous
commodity hardwares.

RozoFS provide a native open source POSIX file system, build on top of a
usual out-band scale-out storage architecture. The RozoFS specificity lies
in the way data is stored. The data to be stored is translated into
several chunks named projections using Mojette Transform and distributed
across storage devices in such a way that it can be retrieved even if
several pieces are unavailable. On the other hand, chuncks are meaningless
alone. Redundancy schemes based on coding techniques like the one used by
RozoFS allow to achieve significant storage savings as compared to simple
