3 goofys - a high-performance, POSIX-ish Amazon S3 file system written in Go

Goofys allows you to mount an S3 bucket as a filey system.

It's a Filey System instead of a File System because goofys strives for performance first and POSIX second. Particularly things that are difficult to support on S3 or would translate into more than one round-trip would either fail (random writes) or faked (no per-file permission). Goofys does not have a on disk data cache (checkout catfs), and consistency model is close-to-open.
