Intel earlier this year more formally announced DAOS as its distributed parallel file-system designed for NVMe storage and aims to be more efficient than other parallel file-systems. Yesterday marked the release of DAOS 2.2 as the newest step forward for Distributed Application Object Storage.

The DAOS distributed, parallel file-system is primarily designed to meet the needs of modern HPC / supercomputer systems. DAOS was originally started while Intel was in the storage business with Optane while at least for now their open-source engineers continue working on DAOS.
