NAStore is a Unix migrating file system developed by the Numerical Aerodynamic Simulation program at NASA Ames. It is available through NASA's software distribution agency, COSMIC. It currently runs only on Convex with 34x0 cartridges and Storage Tek robots. Looks like a local file system to users of the Convex. Available with source.
