i'm reading cloud vendors solutions for the distributed storage systems such as Amazon Dynamo and Google Big Table.
and really confused in two terms :
- what is Distrubuted file systems, Do cloud vendors use different kinds of DFS ?
- what is Distributed storage systems for?
- what are differences of these terms and functionalities ?
if i understand these terms i will create the general architecture of the cloud vendors, any good tutorial or web page will be appreciated.
