renterd Fuse Drive

FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) is a Unix-based filesystem that allows users to mount a virtual filesystem in userspace. With FUSE integration, users could mount renterd storage as a virtual drive and access it from their local file system. With write support, users could modify files and folders stored on renterd directly from their local machine.

renterd iSCSI/NFS integration

iSCSI and NFS are both network file-sharing protocols commonly used in enterprise environments. Integrating renterd with iSCSI and NFS would allow users to mount remote storage volumes and access renterd storage as a local disk. This would make it easier for organizations to use renterd as a secure and cost-effective alternative to traditional storage solutions.
