Meaning of NETWORK FILE SYSTEM

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(NFS) A protocol developed by sun microsystems, and defined in rfc 1094, which allows a computer to access files over a network as if they were on its local disks. This protocol has been incorporated in products by more than two hundred companies, and is now a de facto standard. NFS is implemented using a connectionless protocol (udp) in order to make it stateless.

See nightmare file system, webnfs.
