Twin Peaks Software has achieved a major milestone of computing, the ability to write
and update the file on two different file systems on a network
* in real time
* at geographically remote locations
All file system and Operating System (OS) developed since the beginning of computing
are based on a static, single-location information model, in which all information
is stored and updated by a single computer system at a single location. To compensate
for this fundamental shortcoming, existing High-Availability (HA), Disaster-Recovery
(DR) and Backup systems use workarounds, even the best of which are somewhat inelegant
The Mirror File System(MFS, US patent no. 7418439) changes all this.
By updating files on two or more computer systems simultaneously, in real time, MFS
enables a new, dynamic, multiple-location information model. Data can be stored and
instantly updated on multiple systems at multiple locations, so that all files remain
in sync with each other in real time.
The significance of this development for the OS, Online File Backup, DR, HA, Load
Balancing, and Cloud Computing markets is difficult to overestimate.
