Abstract

This disclosure's purpose is to propose an addition to the existing filesystem, such that a 'clustered files' feature can be realized without having any negative impact on other traditional applications. The proposed additional support can be utilized at the user's discretion, and as such is "backward compatible" and has no adverse effects.
