Coming soon. My own research is in this area; if you're lucky you
might find some pointers by going through my home page
http://alumni.caltech.edu/~rdv/. Contributions welcome.
Look for "A Brief Survey of Current Work on Network-Attached
Peripherals" in the January '96 ACM Operating Systems Review, by yours
truly. An expanded, updated version is available on the web at
www.isi.edu. (rdv, 96/1/22)
www.cs.cmu.edu is Garth Gibson's Parallel Data
Lab, where they're doing excellent work on network-attached storage
At Lawrence Livermore, they're doing a network-attached RAID array to
integrate into HPSS; see
The ViewStation work at MIT,
tns-www.lcs.mit.edu is concentrating on
ATM-attached peripherals, using ATM as a system-area network.
The Netstation project
www.isi.edu (which I work on
at ISI) is focusing on IP-connectible peripherals, using a gigabit
network as the system backplane.
