"The Network File System (NFS) is a well-used distributed file system that enables file operations to be performed on a server from remote clients. The server makes its directories or filesystems available to the rest of the world using an operation known as export. To access these directories, the client mounts the exported directories or filesystems to its local directory hierarchy. Inside the mounted directory, clients access the remote files as if they were stored locally on the machine. Currently, NFS sports three available versions for exporting and mounting of directories or filesystems: versions 2, 3, and 4.
