Are there any distributed filesystems in OpenBSD?

But not firstly from the ports, rather in the base!

Maybe found AFS, but there is only client? - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_distributed_file_systems

  • You probably don’t want OpenAFS unless you plan on running several servers and a Kerberos infrastructure. It doesn’t simply export a volume like with NFS. – jsbillings Dec 15 '17 at 13:28

Not yet. Filesystems are the weakest point of OpenBSD.

There is a port of OpenAFS, though.

    The most common response when someone asks on the mailing lists about "new filesystems in OpenBSD" is "no" and "where is your patch?" :-) – Kusalananda Dec 15 '17 at 11:53
