  • fuseflt
    fuseflt is a FUSE filesystem that allows the user to define file conversion filters that will be applied when requested. It relies on filename extensions to determine file types.
  • fusenrg
    FuseNRG allows you to mount Ahead Nero NRG files on your Unix system with FUSE. On the mounted directory, there will be an ISO file equivalent to the original NRG file. Such an ISO file can be mounted with fuseiso, or burned to a CD with cdrecord or even Ahead Nero itself.
  • Gfarm
    Gfarm filesystem is a next-generation network shared file system, which will be an alternative solution of NFS, and will meet a demand for much larger, much reliable, and much faster file system.
  • GFS: The Global File System
    GFS (Global File System) is a cluster file system. It allows a cluster of computers to simultaneously use a block device that is shared between them (with FC, iSCSI, NBD, etc...). GFS reads and writes to the block device like a local filesystem, but also uses a lock module to allow the computers coordinate their I/O so filesystem consistency is maintained.
  • GitFS

    goofs is a userspace filesystem that aims to expose Google services such as Picasa images, contacts, blogs, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, etc. It is written using the Python binding for FUSE together with the Python gdata API.
    GSTFS (GStreamer FS) is a filesystem for on-demand transcoding of music files between different formats. It utilizes the GStreamer library for conversion, so any formats supported by GStreamer should also be supported by GSTFS.
  • InterMezzo
    InterMezzo was a distributed file system with a focus on high availability. InterMezzo is an Open Source project, currently on Linux (2.2 and 2.3). A primary target of our development is to provide support for flexible replication of directories, with disconnected operation and a persistent cache.
  • JFS
    IBM's journaled file system technology, currently used in IBM enterprise servers, is designed for high-throughput server environments, key to running intranet and other high-performance e-business file servers
  • Joliet

  • LinLogFS
    to implement a log-structured file system within the Linux 2.2.x kernels. LinLogFS has a filesystem-independent core that provides general services required for a log-structured file system and uses a "traditional" file system implementation to do the actual filesystem/VFS operations
  • LoggedFS
    LoggedFS is a fuse-filesystem which can log every operations in the filesystem (open, read, write, chmod, chown, remove, etc...). The configuration file allows to logs operations only for certains files with a regexp.
  • loggerfs
    loggerfs is a FUSE-based virtual file system that automatically parses log files and sends that information to a defined database. Existing log parsers usually run periodically and scan the entire file for changes. loggerfs takes a different approach by providing a virtual file system. Whenever data is appended to a virtual file by the logging daemon, the information is directly stored in the database.
  • Logic File System
    The Logic File System enables the user to access files through an additionnal mountpoint, /lfs, where powerful logic queries can be issued and navigation can be done through different dimensions, like date, size, or extension. For instance,
  • lpkfuse
    lpkfuse is a FUSE filesystem that lets you place all the SSH public keys of your users into LDAP.
  • LUFS Userland Filesystem
    LUFS Userland Filesystem is a hybrid userspace filesystem framework supporting an indefinite number of filesystems (localfs, sshfs implemented so far) transparently for any application. It consists of a kernel module and an userspace daemon. Basicly it delegates most of the VFS calls to a specialized daemon which handles them.
  • lustre
    next-generation cluster file system which can serve clusters with 10,000's of nodes, petabytes of storage, move 100's of GB/sec with state of the art security and management infrastructure. The 1.0 release of Lustre will happen early 2003 and will target clusters up to 1,000 nodes with 100'TB's of storage
  • LynxFS
    LynxFS is a filesystem driver for LynxOS filesystem images. It is based on FUSE. The LynxOS filesystem appears to be very similar to BSD's FFS. This driver may be of use to people inspecting or debugging embedded systems.
  • Magma
    Magma is an experimental network filesystem for Linux and BSD kernels based on a distributed hash table. Each object stored is called a "flare" and is managed using its SHA1 hash key. Flares can be moved as opaque objects from node to node and requests can be proxied through the network transparently to the user. Its goals are scalability, redundancy, data availability, compliance with POSIX, and basic encryption on the user side.
  • Mandos
    The Mandos system allows computers to have encrypted root file systems and at the same time be capable of remote or unattended reboots. The computers run a small client program in the initial RAM disk environment which will communicate with a server over a network. All network communication is encrypted using TLS. The clients are identified by the server using an OpenPGP key that is unique to each client. The server sends the clients an encrypted password. The encrypted password is decrypted by the clients using the same OpenPGP key, and the password is then used to unlock the root file system.
  • memcachefs
    memcachefs is FUSE based filesystem which mounts the memcache server. It allows you to view the cache data of memcached like regular files.
  • MinorFs
    MinorFS is a userspace filesystem for Linux providing private storage to pseudo persistent processes. This allows programs that are run by a user to keep some data safe from all potential malware that runs with all this users' privileges.
  • Moose File System
    Moose File System is a networking, distributed, fault tolerant file system. It spreads data over several servers visible to a user as one resource. For standard file operations, MooseFS, mounted with FUSE, acts as other Unix-alike filesystems.
  • Mumufs
    Mumufs is a virtual file system to support IPC of type many-to-many. It resides in RAM, and supports regular files, directories, symbolic, and hard links.
  • MUSE
    MUSE is an implementation of a "multiple mounts merging" filesystem. It uses symlinks to avoid R/Ws going through fuse.
  • MySQLfs
    MySQLfs is a FUSE filesystem that stores attributes, directory tree structure, and data blocks as MySQL data.
    NILFS is a log-structured file system, and it is downloadable as open-source software. NILFS is an abbreviation of the New Implementation of a Log-structured File System. A log-structured file system has the characteristic that all file system data including metadata is written in a log-like format. Data is never overwritten, only appended in this file system. This greatly improves performance because there is little overhead regarding disk seeks.
  • NNFS
    Non-Networked File System provides a consistent file system over several non networked UNIX computers (or slow networked).
    NOOFS is a project which aims at creating an innovative file system, whose source code is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
