Abstract: Cloud computing as a popular solution to provide for storage of data. Today some applications like database, media etc deals with the large amounts of data having higher I/O data demands. In order to improve performance and reduce loss of data of these applications can use parallel file systems. PVFS2 is a free parallel file system developed by a multi-institution team of parallel I/O, networking and storage experts. In this paper we present the design of an implementation for cloud environment to reduce loss of data through using remote servers that can be accessed through the Internet. The implementation aims to increase the availability of data and reduce in loss of information.

Keywords: PVFS2, Parallel file system, Loss of data.
