jimfs - An in-memory file system for Java 7+

  •        113

Jimfs is an in-memory implementation of Java 7's java.nio.file abstract file system API. imfs supports almost all the APIs under java.nio.file. Jimfs also supports creating file systems that, for example, use Windows-style paths and (to an extent) behavior. In general, however, file system behavior is modeled after UNIX and may not exactly match any particular real file system or platform.

zbox - Zero-details, privacy-focused embeddable file system.

  •    Rust

Zbox is a zero-details, privacy-focused embeddable file system. Its goal is to help application store files securely, privately and reliably. By encapsulating files and directories into an encrypted repository, it provides a virtual file system and exclusive access to authorised application. Unlike other system-level file systems, such as ext4, XFS and Btrfs, which provide shared access to multiple processes, Zbox is a file system that runs in the same memory space as the application. It only provides access to one process at a time.

goofys - a high-performance, POSIX-ish Amazon S3 file system written in Go

  •    Go

Goofys allows you to mount an S3 bucket as a filey system. It's a Filey System instead of a File System because goofys strives for performance first and POSIX second. Particularly things that are difficult to support on S3 or would translate into more than one round-trip would either fail (random writes) or faked (no per-file permission). Goofys does not have a on disk data cache (checkout catfs), and consistency model is close-to-open.

libfuse - The reference implementation of the Linux FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) interface

  •    C

FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) is an interface for userspace programs to export a filesystem to the Linux kernel. The FUSE project consists of two components: the fuse kernel module (maintained in the regular kernel repositories) and the libfuse userspace library (maintained in this repository). libfuse provides the reference implementation for communicating with the FUSE kernel module. A FUSE file system is typically implemented as a standalone application that links with libfuse. libfuse provides functions to mount the file system, unmount it, read requests from the kernel, and send responses back. libfuse offers two APIs: a "high-level", synchronous API, and a "low-level" asynchronous API. In both cases, incoming requests from the kernel are passed to the main program using callbacks. When using the high-level API, the callbacks may work with file names and paths instead of inodes, and processing of a request finishes when the callback function returns. When using the low-level API, the callbacks must work with inodes and responses must be sent explicitly using a separate set of API functions.

FSArchiver - Filesystem Archiver for Linux

  •    C

FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a different file-system. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the file-system when it extracts the data to partitions. Everything is checksummed in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive is corrupt, you just loose the current file, not the whole archive.

gcsf - a FUSE file system based on Google Drive

  •    Rust

GCSF is a virtual filesystem that allows users to mount their Google Drive account locally and interact with it as a regular disk partition. You can find out more in this paper. An AUR package is maintained by axionl: gcsf-git.

vmtouch - Portable file system cache diagnostics and control

  •    C

vmtouch - the Virtual Memory Toucher, is a tool for learning about and controlling the file system cache of unix and unix-like systems. It is BSD licensed so you can basically do whatever you want with it.

BrowserFS - BrowserFS is an in-browser filesystem that emulates the Node JS filesystem API and supports storing and retrieving files from various backends

  •    Javascript

BrowserFS is an in-browser file system that emulates the Node JS file system API and supports storing and retrieving files from various backends. BrowserFS also integrates nicely into the Emscripten file system. More backends can be defined by separate libraries, so long as they extend the BaseFileSystem class. Multiple backends can be active at once at different locations in the directory hierarchy.

diskover - File system crawler, disk space usage, file search engine and file system analytics powered by Elasticsearch

  •    Python

diskover is an open source file system crawler and disk space usage software that uses Elasticsearch to index and manage data across heterogeneous storage systems. Using diskover, you are able to more effectively search and organize files and system administrators are able to manage storage infrastructure, efficiently provision storage, monitor and report on storage use, and effectively make decisions about new infrastructure purchases. As the amount of file data generated by business' continues to expand, the stress on expensive storage infrastructure, users and system administrators, and IT budgets continues to grow.

SeaweedFS - Simple and highly scalable distributed file system

  •    Go

SeaweedFS is a simple and highly scalable distributed file system. There are two objectives: to store billions of files! to serve the files fast! Instead of supporting full POSIX file system semantics, SeaweedFS choose to implement only a key~file mapping. Similar to the word "NoSQL", you can call it as "NoFS".

lcfs - LCFS Graph driver for Docker

  •    C

tl;dr: Every time you build, pull or destroy a Docker container, you are using a storage driver. Current storage drivers like Device Mapper, AUFS, and Overlay2 implement container behavior using file systems designed to run a full OS. We are open-sourcing a file system that is purpose-built for the container lifecycle. We call this new file system Layer Cloning File System (LCFS). Because it is designed only for containers, it is up to 2.5x faster to build an image and up to almost 2x faster to pull an image. We're looking forward to working with the container community to improve and expand this new tool. Layer Cloning FileSystem (LCFS) is a new filesystem purpose-built to be a Docker storage driver. All Docker images are constructed of layers using storage drivers (graph drivers) like AUFS, OverlayFS, and Device Mapper. As a design principle, LCFS focuses on layers as the first-class citizen. The LCFS filesystem operates directly on top of block devices, as opposed to merging separate filesystems. Thereby, LCFS aims to directly manage at the container image’s layer level, eliminate the overhead of having a second filesystem that then is merged, and to optimize for density.

OrangeFS - Scale-out Network File System

  •    C

OrangeFS is a scale-out network file system designed for use on high-end computing (HEC) systems that provides very high-performance access to multi-server-based disk storage, in parallel. The OrangeFS server and client are user-level code, making them very easy to install and manage. OrangeFS has optimized MPI-IO support for parallel and distributed applications, and it is leveraged in production installations and used as a research platform for distributed and parallel storage.

mock-fs - Configurable mock for the fs module

  •    Javascript

The mock-fs module allows Node's built-in fs module to be backed temporarily by an in-memory, mock file system. This lets you run tests against a set of mock files and directories instead of lugging around a bunch of test fixtures. The code below makes it so the fs module is temporarily backed by a mock file system with a few files and directories.
