HopsFS FUSE Mount

Introducing HopFS Mount, a FUSE file system designed to enhance user experience and simplify interactions with distributed file systems, specifically tailored for HopsFS. Leveraging the Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) framework, our solution establishes a seamless interface, shielding users from the inherent complexities associated with distributed file operations.

HopsFS, a derivative of HDFS, renowned for its scalability and performance, is now easily accessible with the familiarity of a local file system through our FUSE-based innovation. By abstracting the intricacies of distributed file systems, our implementation ensures that users engage with HopsFS in a manner similar to traditional file systems. This abstraction not only reduces the entry barriers for users unfamiliar with distributed systems but also enhances the overall usability and accessibility of HopsFS.
