This paper shows the design of MiPFS, a parallel file system intended to be used as a low-level platform to develop more complex I/O entities on top of it. This parallel file system relays on the idea that the user should execute I/O operations using the data-types stored on each object, so that each file can be managed as an typed object. However, as we want to provide only mechanism, and not policies, MiPFS includes functions to manage fixed and variable length records, and their associated indexes. This approach, and the quality of service functionality, allows to use MiPFS as a continuous media parallel file system.
