Happy 20th birthday, OpenAFS Distributed File System

A stable open source distributed file system release is 20 years old
Oct. 19, 2020 - PRLog -- Twenty years ago, on October 31st, the OpenAFS project source code was made available on the IBM Developer Works Web site in the Open Source Zone. Its corpus owing to the generosity of IBM, which cast forth a largely complete version of its AFS 3.6 source tree under the IBM public license.

OpenAFS is an open-source implementation of the Andrew distributed file system (AFS). AFS was originally developed at Carnegie Mellon University, and developed as a commercial product by the Transarc Corporation.
