Abstract: 

Object based REST access is becoming the norm for cloud storage services. Unfortunately most services are using their own flavors of REST and applications have to be adapted one by one and for each service. A set of high performance open source libraries and adapters (NFS, FUSE, CIFS, SMB) to facilitate the transition away from block based storage is proposed.
