eCryptfs: a Stacked Cryptographic Filesystem
The Stony Brook University (SUNY) File Systems and Storage Labs (FSL) (filesystems.org) has developed a stacked filesystem framework called FiST. eCryptfs is derived from Cryptfs, which is one of the example filesystems implemented in FiST. Unionfs is another popular stacked filesystem written by the SUNY FSL.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
