Syndicate is a scalable distributed filesystem built around the CoBlitz CDN. It provides users with the ability to quickly and efficiently publish and read files across the Internet via a filesystem interface. A mounted filesystem subscribes to one or more metadata servers, which in turn crawl content servers across the Internet and translate URLs to files into directory hierarchies to be mounted. Read operations on a file are translated into HTTP GET requests to CoBlitz, which in turn causes CoBlitz to cache and replicate the file data for other mounted filesystems to access.
