Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) framework has notorious reputation of a toy filesystem which is mostly used by students for educational purposes. In this presentation, Maxim Patlasov will review the challenges a company faces trying to implement enterprise-quality distributed storage solution based on FUSE framework, discuss FUSE improvements made to overcome discovered limitations (asynchronous handling of direct I/O, writeback cache policy, and others), and illuminate the areas of future development.

The work was done to support our own Parallels Cloud Storage product, but the FUSE enhancements are in the upstream kernel and available to any cloud storage system using fuse (like Gluster).
