On the Scalable Video and Web Server, Tiger Shark uses Real-Time Virtual Shared Disk (RTVSD) as the data layer, allowing multiple nodes to share a file system that physically resides across many nodes. This allows load to be balanced out across several nodes. With wide striping of multimedia data, the back-end nodes can be utilized in a uniform manner. Tiger Shark supports concurrent cache coherent read/write access to files stored in RTVSD. Calypso is used as a the catalog server and the Calypso Extensible Token Manager (CETM) is used for consistency control.
