| 9pfs is a network filesystem protocol developed for Plan 9. 9pfs is very simple and describes a series of commands and responses. It is completely independent from the communication channels, in fact many clients and servers support multiple channels, usually called "transports". For example the Linux client supports tcp and unix sockets, fds, virtio and rdma.

It is completely independent from the communication channels, in fact many clients and servers support multiple channels, usually called "transports". For example the Linux client supports tcp and unix sockets, fds, virtio and rdma. Developers
pvcalls Developers PV Calls is a paravirtualized protocol that allows the implementation of a set of POSIX functions in a different domain.
