  1. GEOM

    GEOM is the main storage framework for the FreeBSD operating system. It is available in FreeBSD 5.0 and higher and provides a standardized way to access storage layers. GEOM is modular and allows for geom modules to connect to the framework. For example, the geom_mirror module will provide RAID1 or mirroring functionality to the system. A wide range of modules are already available, and new ones are always in active development by various FreeBSD developers. GEOM was developed for the FreeBSD Project by Poul-Henning Kamp and NAI Labs, the Security Research Division of Network Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035, as part of the DARPA CHATS research program. The name symbolizes its impact on disk geometry.
