For multimedia support, VSD has been enhanced to support real-time access; deadline scheduling is performed dynamically at the VSD server nodes. Real-time VSD (RTVSD) is currently in use in a scalable parallel (SP) video server trial in Japan. Using the real-time aspects of the RTVSD allows the filesystems to make guarantees of service for real-time applications such as interactive audio and video, which make it integral to a scalable multimedia server. Recoverable VSD allows provides transparent access to data in the presence of VSD server failures.
Real-Time Virtual Shared Disk
Real-Time VSD provides the underlying data engine used by the Tiger Shark File System in the Clustered Web Server.
