Is there any current project or planned project that supports file system access over
the WAN so that any access to a file on a remote server, will result in a file copy
to a local cache on the requesting system, and all further requests for that
file, will be provided from the local cache, unless the file was modified.
For now I am discussing Read Only access on the remote client.
I think that I read of a future development for kernel 2.6 that includes "cachefs" as a general
cached file system mechanism that can be incorporated within other file system implementations.
For now I've since those options, but they do not seem as close to "GA"…
