About SBFS

Heads up!

This page documents a beta version of the SBFS functionality.

Overview

SBFS is a command line tool which enables interaction with Platform project files that are mounted as a local file system.

Use SBFS to make project files available on a local file system and thus as accessible as any other locally available file. This eliminates the need for downloading complete files to a local machine, which is especially useful when working with large files exceeding the size of a local disk.

With SBFS, parts of a file are accessible without necessitating a complete file download and users can perform interactive analyses on a local machine (or server instance) without needing to bring their tool to the Platform.

Availability

The SBFS is available for Linux and macOS machines.
