Abstract

This document 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. MiPFS is intended to provide multiple services, like high-performance I/O, multimedia, or standard functionality, everything with a reduced but very powerful user interface. The proposed interface includes basic I/O operations with scatter-gather addressing, file control operations, hints specification, file indexing, and quality of service negotiation. MiPFS also includes functions to manage fixed and variable length records.
