Analysis of  distributed filesystems and design of an Offline-Filesystem (german language only)

Instructor: Prof. Dr. Peter Trommler

There is a large number of distributed filesystems available, which are released under an open-source license. Most of them do not have the capability to work in disconnected mode. This thesis evaluates offline-enabled network filesystems and compares the concepts. This knowledge is used to create a concept for an own offline filesystem, which will be implemented at a later time and released under an open-source license.
