The shared file system that scales automatically, with unlimited storage and high performance.
Never run out of disk again
Share files between EC2 instances with unlimited storage and high performance. You can share files between EC2 instances from different regions. Scale your EC2 instances up and out with high performance and without any storage cluster overhead. Your data is stored reliably and redundantly on Amazon S3.
Scale your WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Moodle file assets with high performance. ObjectiveFS is a high throughput and high performance filesystem for content management systems. Your web servers can concurrently read and write to your shared filesystem and updates are visible to all your servers. Your file assets are automatically shared between your servers by ObjectiveFS as you spin up more servers.
Your image processing and video rendering applications can run directly in the cloud using our POSIX filesystem. Spin up cloud instances on demand for your image and video processing jobs and use ObjectiveFS as a shared persistent storage for your workflow.
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 the performance needed for big data applications that require high throughput to worker nodes.
ObjectiveFS provides a reliable and secure storage using highly durable object stores such as Amazon S3 and on-premise S3-compatible object stores. Your data is stored securely using end-to-end encryption and can be accessed from your servers, both on-premise and in the cloud. You can use the built-in Snapshot feature to recover point-in-time snapshots of your data.
ObjectiveFS has been a fantastic addition to our infrastructure. I don’t think I will ever work with S3 without it again. Mike K., Principal Architect at WeaveUp Inc
When designing our e-commerce solutions on AWS with Prestashop or Magento, ObjectiveFS is the most valuable partner for shared filesystems. Its high performance, flexibility and resiliency allows our infrastructures to scale efficiently at a reasonable cost. E. Franchini, Solution Architect at neen srl - High Performance Hosting
Thank you again for your excellent support and innovative product - both make accomplishing a truly scalable WordPress infrastructure on AWS easy. Anthony Coleman, Senior Technical Architect at a Fortune 500 company
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

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..
