Is there a way to mount a cloud storage as a local disk?

0 votes
I would like to be able to mount some cloud-based storage (object storage or remote disk) to my local machine that would allow me to simply export to this cloud storage as if it had been a locally mounted drive.

What is the fastest and simplest way to try and do this?

I looked into Google Cloud Filestore but I'm having trouble figuring out how to mount it to my local machine.

Can somebody please help!

You could probably try using Gcsfuse for this puprpose. 

Cloud Storage FUSE is an open source FUSE adapter that allows you to mount Cloud Storage buckets as file systems on Linux or macOS systems.

Gcs-fuse can be used to mount a Google Cloud Storage bucket to your local machine. 

The docs can be found here: https://cloud.google.com/storage/docs/gcs-fuse

brew install gcsfuse
mkdir ~/gcs-buckets/my-bucket
gcsfuse my-bucket ~/gcs-buckets/my-bucket
