With the community of users and partners getting more and more active and involved, we felt like it would be good to pick a new name for FhGFS.
P.S.: Although we were rather thinking about bees as nice and busy animals that work together as a swarm when we picked it, the new name seems to refer many people to a famous boy group from the 1970s – which is also not completely wrong, as BeeGFS will do everything it can to keep your data stayin’ alive…
