  1. Amazon Cloud Drive support

    Amazon Cloud Drive is an unlimited cloud drive provider that is extremely inexpensive and has an immense user base.

      We’re still considering supporting ACD. Right now, we’re not exactly sure about the use cases depending on it. Can you give us some examples on how you imagine using ACD with Infinit? (here or by email)

    • Backblaze B2

      This is the logical third major storage provider that should be integrated. Highly reliable, and a fraction of the cost of AWS and GCS.

      • Google Drive support

        Many of us already have existing Google Drive accounts (as well as Dropbox, OneDrive etc.) as part of other subscriptions. It'd be handy to be able to replicate to these services as an additional feature.

        • Support Openstack swift for storage

          As already implemented for amazon S3 infinit should provide support for swift object storage.

            • Non-Fuse Mounting

              Similar to the "Platform Agnostic Command Line Tool" request, it would be great to be able to actually load a portion of the "Infinit volume" without using a streaming virtual filesystem.

              Obviously there are some UX disadvantages when not using Fuse, but there are also a lot of advantages. Some of the primary ones being simply that you get instant, native filesystem access to files that you may need that with.

              Updates would likely be done through some type of slow file change watching, which is suboptimal, but this feature is sort of a tradeoff. You gain raw FS performance…

                Hi,

                Thanks a lot for this suggestion. Indeed, having a streaming-based access interface such as FUSE has several disadvantages: (i) FUSE is still not a super stable technology (i) unlike mirroring technologies like Dropbox’s that clones the files locally, a streaming-based access may prevent you from accessing your files should you not be connected to the network for instance.

                We have planned three things to reduces these limitations:
                – The possibility to access a volume through a synced folder (in opposition to a mounted volume) leading to a similar experience to Dropbox where all the files are cloned locally. It consumes local storage space but has the benefit of having the files available at any time. Example: infinit-volume —sync (rather than infinit-volume —mount)
                – Provide a way to spawn a local NFS/SMB server that the local computer could connect to (since all operating systems embed NFS/SMB

              • Kubernetes FlexVolume

                We would be interested to see Kubernetes volume support for Infinit. The FlexVolume is likely the easiest and fastest to implement

                  • Give priorities for pulling from storage, e.g. prefer local disk that won't have transfer fees

                    When you pull from S3, GC, or blackblaze there's a 5-13cent/fee per gb.
                    While it's GREAT that it provides added redundancy, an option to _prefer_ the local storage could save a LOT in bandwidth fees.

                        Hi,

                        Sorry for the delay. We had to put the versioning functionality on the side for now because of more important requests.

                        We will keep you updated as soon as we decided to move forward with it.

                        Thanks.

                        • Add mobile support (Android first, then iOS)

                          Android, being slightly more flexible, should be easy to support via a native app or framework integration (so we could generate our own native apps).

                          • Support Sia - The "airbnb" of decentralized file storage

                            Sia is a blockchain based, decentralized (peer-2-peer) cloud storage network. The network is currently in beta, but aims to release a 1.0 version in March '16.

                            It would be amazing if Infinit would be the first, large aggregation service to support Sia. See http://sia.tech for an overview and github.com/NebulousLabs/Sia for source code and API documentation.

                            Sia aims to become a direct competitor to Amazon S3, but faster and at a fraction of the cost. Sia will thus appeal to enterprises with large storage requirements, as well as enterprises that require a storage back-end to develop their own services (similar to…

                                  • Support volume quotas

                                    Support per-volume quotas.

                                    Right now, you can kind of achieve something similar by separating storage nodes and creating new networks with those storage nodes in order to limit the amount of data stored, but there's cases where it would be beneficial to have a single large network that has multiple volumes, each with their own quota.

                                      Thanks for the suggestion Andrew.

                                      It is indeed planned to provide quotas at the network level indeed. Unfortunately, given that our roadmap is already full for the months to come, I can guarantee you when this will be available.

                                      Thanks.

                                      • Provide a fake S3 API

                                        Providing an API similar to AWS S3 will make this tool compatible with *a lot* of existing software components.

                                        This approach is already done by S3Proxy, fake-s3, Ceph, and quite a lot of cloud storage providers.

                                          It is true that Infinit can be used as both an object- and file-based storage service.

                                          As such, we intend to provide an S3-compatible layer. We don’t know yet we this will be available since we still have to improve the file system component.

                                          In the meantime, you can probably achieve the same result by using Minio: http://minio.io
