The Brown Object Storage System (BOSS)

BOSS is a client-server object storage system. A full description of BOSS's functionality and architecture can be found in David Langworthy's thesis. Soon, the system, documentation and executable for SunOS 4.3.1 will be downloadable. There a have been two papers published on BOSS. The first describes the performance attributes of BOSS and the second describes the storage class abstraction. Both of these papers are subsumed and updated with the thesis.
