Oracle has announced that its Cluster File System 2 for Linux will be distributed with the Linux kernel.

The Linux kernel forms the basis of most Linux distributions. The announcement was made at this week’s LinuxWorld conference in the US.

The Cluster File System allows multiple Linux servers to use the same file system and is designed to ease the management of Linux servers.

Release 2 has been enhanced to work as a general-purpose file system, rather than being database-specific, further improving the management offered by the solution.

Oracle Cluster File System 2 is available under the open source GNU General Public Licence. The solution is currently distributed as part of Novell’s Suse Linux Enterprise and Red Hat’s Enterprise Linux 4 platforms.

The software will now be distributed as part of the Linux kernel version 2.6.16.
