The shared file system that scales automatically, with unlimited storage and zero maintenance.
Never run out of disk again
I’m honestly impressed. This is the convenience I’m looking for with a cloud storage solution. Lars-Erik S., Infrastructure Engineer at Spotify
We need an easy and scalable filesystem for our web servers. We tried so many filesystem solutions and ended with ObjectiveFS. It fits our needs in terms of easy, scalable and performance. We also received really great support. Glen Lumanau, Head of Infrastructure at Kaskus
Share files between EC2 instances from all regions with unlimited storage and good performance. Scale up and out your EC2 instances without any storage cluster maintenance.
Scale your WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Moodle file assets between your web servers. Your web servers can concurrently read and write to our shared filesystem and updates are visible to all your servers. Learn more
Your image processing and video rendering applications can run directly in the cloud using our POSIX filesystem without rewrite. Spin up cloud instances on demand for your image and video processing jobs and use our filesystem as a shared persistent storage.
Distribute your machine learning, life science and big data computation workload in parallel to the cloud. Use ObjectiveFS shared filesystem to read and write your data concurrently.
ObjectiveFS provides a standard storage interface for your cloud or on-premise data. You can move incrementally to the cloud and use the cloud for part of your operations.

ObjectiveFS is a full featured POSIX-compatible file system. S3FS is a way of viewing S3 bucket as a file system, and doesn’t fully support regular file system semantics which breaks the expectation of many Linux programs. see more..
The main difference is number of concurrent mounts. ObjectiveFS supports concurrent mounts from multiple machines, while S3QL supports mounts from one machine only. see more..
