LucidLink Filespaces – Product Brief

LucidLink’s Filespaces is a global file system optimized for object storage. The Filespaces service streams data directly to and from a cloud object storage bucket using a software client rather than uploading and downloading copies of files.

Unlike many of its competitors, LucidLink does not use traditional NFS or SMB NAS protocols. The proprietary Filespaces distributed streaming file system serves as a POSIX-type front end for cloud object storage. The service coordinates and distributes metadata from files stored in cloud object storage such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure Blob or any S3-compatible object storage.

Usage and Deployment

LucidLink Filespaces Clients can install on Windows, Linux and macOS 32-bit and 64-bit workstations, laptops and servers. The client synchronizes metadata with every  other client it collaborates with and mounts on each system as a local volume. Each client caches data and provides access to cloud-based storage as if it were stored locally. A LucidLink folder and data shows up within Windows Explorer, on a Linux Desktop directory or in MacOS Finder.

LucidLink’s streaming service is designed for rapid streaming of large files, making Filespaces a good fit for creative content use cases. These include media and entertainment, broadcast, post-production, corporate marketing, digital ad agencies and architectural, engineering and construction design firms.
