Metadata white paper

Metadata Provides Foundation for Enterprise Collaboration

Metadata can be defined as “data that describes and gives information about other data”. In the case of a file system, the metadata is used to describe directories, files, and file attributes. Particular file attributes include file size, creation date, last modified date, file owner, and file access permissions. The purpose of this white paper is to describe Panzura’s patented technology for sharing metadata, and how it forms the foundation of the Panzura Global File System.
