Tardigrade with S3FS-FUSE?

As Tardigrade is suppose to be S3 compatible, do you think it will work with S3FS-FUSE ?

You can try it now: Test network + S3 Gateway and you have an s3 API available right on your PC!


I believe the uplink binary has an option to mount a bucket to storage as well. Haven’t tried it yet though, but that would skip a few layers inbetween.


So you even have a two options to compare :slight_smile:

Is the test network open or invite only? I’m on the waiting list for Tardigrade but haven’t been given access yet. Looking forward to testing it out. I had good success storing on the v2 network.

Speaking of storing on v3. Are files persistent now? i.e. no need to re-upload every 2-3 months. I’m looking for a good place to backup my media library with future plans to access it via EC2.

It’s a local test network, so no invites are needed.

If you want to use a public beta network, then you should subscribe on tardigrade.io to receive an developer’s invite.

Yes, files are persistent now. They could be deleted only if you specified an expiration date or remove it explicitly.

You don’t need to have a EC2 to access your files, the uplink and you keys are enough.

Thanks for the info. I’m looking replace my beefy RAIDZ2 FreeNAS server, also running Plex, with a two bay Synology NAS. Sync a backup of my NAS media to Tardigrade, mount it as read-only on a scheduled EC2 instance running my Plex server. So Tardigrade will act as my off-site backup and also host my Plex media storage being transcoded if needed by the scheduled EC2.

I’m a cloud architect by day, so trying to move my stuff to the cloud as well.
