From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  Network File System
  NFS
  
      (NFS) A protocol developed by
     Sun Microsystems, and defined in RFC 1094, which allows a
     computer to access files over a network as if they were on its
     local disks.  This protocol has been incorporated in
     products by more than two hundred companies, and is now a de
     facto standard.  NFS is implemented using a connectionless
     protocol ({UDP}) in order to make it stateless.
