This is precisely my brand of evil and I love it. github.com/archiecobbs/s3backe

This allows one to use S3 or any compatible object store as the backing for a file system. Instead of blocks on a drive, you have blocks in S3. Motherfuckers are putting zfs on this thing which is :flan_evil:​ and I love it.

@sungo ooh. I've been looking for something like this. Thank you.

There is also s3fs, which is not a completely standard filesystem, but has a 1:1 relationship between files and objects, and uses the filenames, so you can find your data intact in the object bucket if it screws up.
