The project is to come up with a mechanism to allow the creation of a Virtual Distributed Disk (VDD). The VDD will be exposed as a device file but will actually be backed by multiple disks residing on multiple machines. Thus, the contents of a VDD can be distributed across multiple machines based on user specified policies. The focus of the project will be as follows: Allow creating, deleting, updating, and reading of any part of VDD. There will be a kernel module to handle various file related system calls and also a system to be able to write to and read from remote sections of the VDD when an application on any machine writes to or reads from it. A caching solution is provided to avoid remote file access as far as possible.

Keywords: VDD, Kernel, Socket, Caching
