How to Mount an Amazon S3 Bucket as a Local Drive using cunoFS

Amazon S3 object storage is very popular due to its relatively low cost and its scalability. However, working with S3 isn’t as straightforward as working with a local filesystem. Object storage is conceptually different from files on a filesystem. And if you already have a set of tools and workflows you use that rely on …

Is POSIX Outdated in the Cloud Era?

POSIX — the Portable Operating System Interface — is the standard API used by UNIX and conforming non-UNIX (including Windows) operating systems to maintain compatibility with each other. The POSIX standard allows applications written for one operating system to work on others with minimal-to-no reworking depending on the other APIs required, greatly reducing the complexity …

cunoFS is a High Performance POSIX Layer for Object Storage

Implementing cost-effective, scalable storage has traditionally presented problems to developers. While object storage is cheap and scalable, it requires that existing tools be adapted to work with cloud providers' APIs rather than the filesystem.  Historically, tools that bridge the gaps between object storage and POSIX environments have suffered limitations — particularly poor performance, scalability, or the …
