Coda is a distributed file system like NFS and AFS. It is freely available under the GPL. It functions somewhat like AFS in being a "stateful" file system. Coda and AFS cache files on your local machine to improve performance. But Coda goes a step further than AFS by letting you access the cached files when there is no available network, viz. disconnected laptops and network outages. Coda also has read write replication servers. The Coda file server is outside the kernel and on the client theCoda cache manager Venus is again outside of the kernel, but on clients one needs a kernel module.
