As the amount of data is increasing rapidly, distributed file-systems have to store and manipulate the large amount of data. However, the increasing data are pushing the bounds of distributed file-systems using traditional block-based storage devices performance and scalability. Using the standard object-based storage device, OASIS has been developed as a cluster file-system. Like the most of existing out-of-band cluster file-systems using ODSs, the OASIS could not support the extended remove UNIX semantics to defer the remove of an inode until the uses of the inode in all client nodes are finished.
