In this paper we demonstrate that the typical problem of loss in performance due to disk I/O can be efficiently dealt with by using separate strategies for the storage of file data and data structures required for file management. Furthermore, to make our design very reliable, stable storage is provided. In fact our design is reliable to the extent that even after all types of hardware and software failures (except the most catastrophic ones, e.g., all the hard disks crashing at a time) our system can retrieve file's data. In order to further improve performance the design of the caching module takes into consideration all the aspects of the basic file and transaction services. The design of the disk service allows the contents of a file to be distributed among more than one disk drive. Thus, for all practical purposes our design imposes virtually no restrictions on the file size and disk capacity.
