Recent Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC-C) results demonstrate the performance benefits of using DAFS technology in database environments.
Jim Pappas is a co-chair of the DAFS Collaborative and director of technology initiatives at Intel (Hillsboro, OR).

DAFS communication has more in common with high-performance messaging systems.
DAFS has a fundamental advantage over other file access methods when reading data.
DAFS, we believe, will be an important underpinning for the data center of the future-enabling independently and massively scalable storage and compute power, resiliency to application server and file server failovers, multiprotocol data sharing, ease of management, and a heterogeneous, standards-based environment that promotes Cost efficiency and vendor independence.
Now those applications that will be built on top of or with DAFS itself, describe how those applications are going to benefit from this.
