s3fs with Linode object storage

Does anyone connected to s3fs (the new object storage of linode)

the question is : is this command correct ?

*** command ***
s3fs buket-name /path/to/mount -o passwd_file=/etc/passwd-s3fs/credentials -o url=https://us-east-1.linodeobjects.com/ -o dbglevel=info -f -o curldbg

*** gives this error ***

It looks like you're using S3FS/FUSE (File System in User Space) to allow for mounting your Object Storage bucket as a local file system. Linode Object Storage as an additional file storage system is not its intended use case. [EDIT: You can check out these instructions for using S3FS with Object Storage!] The great thing about Object Storage is that it doesn't require attachment to a Linode to operate. If you're looking for more available space for your existing server, you have two options:

Block Storage Volumes

Our Block Storage volumes can be used for storage of data and can be mounted to a Linode. While speed is not the forté of Block Storage, these volumes can hold extensive amounts of data that can be read by your Linode.

Larger Linode Capacity

If you are in need of a way to host your information and process it in the same place, you can resize your Linode to a higher plan. Resizing grants you additional CPU utilization and additional storage space.

Depending on your use case, either of these options may be the best route for you to go. If you have a particular reason for using S3FS, let us know! Object Storage is a new product and we'd love to hear your feedback.

found it

for regular mount (not in mount sftab, but in command line)

s3fs bucket-name /mnt/s3fs -o url="https://us-east-1.linodeobjects.com" -o endpoint=us-east-1 -o passwd_file=/etc/passwd-s3fs-liquid
