The File Transfer Access and Management protocol (FTAM), an ISO application protocol, offers file transfer services between client (initiator). This paper assumes knowledge of the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) [RFC] and the File Transfer, Access, and Management Protocol (FTAM) [ISO,2,3,4. FTAM is designed to help users access files on diverse systems that use compatible FTAM implementations. It is similar to FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and NFS.

In this respect, FTAM has some relational database features.
It also provides access to files and management of files on diverse systems. There are advantages to stateless operation. FTAM uses the concept of a virtual filestore, which provides a common view of files.
Download the electronic version of the Encyclopedia of Networking, 2nd edition Many of the implementations so far have failed to interoperate with one another. Files protodol transferred between systems by first establishing a connection-oriented session.
Users can manipulate files down to the record level, which is how FTAM stores files. Access file stores both locally and remotely, making FTAM a distributed file access protocol more similar to Gopher in this regard than to FTP Integrate management of both local protockl remote file stores, including the ability to manipulate both files and their attributes Access file stores on different kinds of machines that have different types of file systems Transfer files both prltocol and asynchronously The FTAM protocoll defines the architecture of a hierarchical virtual file store in terms of file structure, file attributes, and the kinds of operations that can be performed on files and their attributes.
Data is interpreted as records and FTAM provides the virtual filestore capabilities that store record-oriented structured files.
Once the session is established, file transfer can take place. In a stateless system, such as Prootcol, requests are made independently of one another in a connectionless manner.

Get info about the Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunicatons3rd edition Vendors are left free to create their own user interfaces to Protockl file systems or protockl existing interfaces for their vendor-specific file systems.
The FTAM standard does not specify the actual user interface for protool access and management, simply the underlying architecture of the system. FTAM enables users to: FTAM is an OSI standard that provides file transfer services between client initiator and server responder systems in an open environment.
In these respects, it strives to be a universal file system. FTAM is a system in which connection-oriented information about the user and the session is maintained by a server until the session is taken down.

Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in “The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications. The FTAM file system hides the differences between different vendor systems.

If the server crashes, the request simply goes away and the client makes another request. FTAM has worked well as a way to bring mainframe information systems into distributed environments, ptotocol FTAM has not caught on otherwise.

File Transfer Access and Management protocol (FTAM)
FTAM specifies document types as files with straight binary information or text files in which each line is terminated with a carriage return. The FTAM model defines the architecture of a hierarchical virtual file store in terms of file structure, file attributes, and the kinds of operations that can be performed on files and protocoll attributes.
In a stateful system, both protocl must be aware that one or the other has crashed so they can restore the states and prevent data corruption.
