Programming odds and ends — InfiniBand, RDMA, and low-latency networking for now.

OS X support and other s3fuse news

Version 0.12 of my pet project, s3fuse, now supports OS X (via FUSE4x). A few notes/caveats:

  • Only FUSE4x is supported. OSXFUSE is not.
  • -o noappledouble is your friend. It will keep OS X from filling your S3 bucket with .DS_Store files as you browse the mounted volume.
  • Set a reasonable daemon timeout (e.g., -o daemon_timeout=3600) to keep FUSE4x from timing out and aborting large uploads/downloads

Sometime in January I’ll release version 0.13, which is a near-complete rewrite that adds support for file-level encryption. I’m also working on adding support for file retrieval from Glacier (for files archived by S3 — see this post on the AWS blog).
