OS Weekly takes an introductory peek at what would seem to be a file system designed and used by Google. It's not likely that a Google OS is included in with all the other projects Google is working on, this is probably just the biggest distributed file system going.
"I had a course on distributed system in my Engineering curriculum, and I was really fascinated with
the way people use this technology for work. As my interest grew in this field, I started to read a
lot on this. As a result, while browsing a few pages, I found a link to Google File System. Honestly,
it didn't make any sense to me. Where would Google deploy this proprietary file system? Or is Google
planning to have an operating system? I decided to have a look at it nonetheless and here's a quick
overview of my findings."
