Subject Re: Blobstore Filesystem: does it work on shared folders with concurrent clients?
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2014 17:32:53 GMT
Not a good fit, Felipe. I would use something that exposes S3 apis and
is already a distributed service. There are a number of things like
this including swift, ceph, many cassandra-like-things, etc.

Filesystem was designed just as a tool, not as a production service.

Hope this helps!
