I recently discovered that I cannot mount a Amazon S3 bucket on my VPS server because it is in a virtualized environment. I am guessing this is a restriction with kernel alterations (?). I was instructed to move to a dedicated server, but could not get a confirmation that the (expensive) upgrade would allow s3fs to be used in the dedicated hosting. Has anyone used s3fs at DH and what environment were you hosting in?
I’m pretty certain that it will not work on a dedicated server either. s3fs requires FUSE support, and the kernel we use on dedicated servers doesn’t have that.
I just signed up for a DreamCompute Beta on DH. Once I get added I will try it out and see if I have any luck. Thanks for the heads up on the dedicated hosting side.
