Network File System (NFS
) is a distributed File System protocol
originally developed by Sun Microsystems
allowing a user on a client
computer to access files over a computer network
much like local storage is accessed.
Network File System, like many other protocols, builds on the Open Network Computing Remote Procedure Call (ONC RPC) system.
Network File System is an open standard defined in a RFC 7862, allowing anyone to implement the protocol.
