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. ##Resources * [Installation procedure](doc:installation-procedure) * [Configure SBFS credentials](doc:configure-sbfs-credentials) * [List available projects for SBFS](doc:list-available-projects-for-sbfs) * [Mount a project](doc:mount-a-project) * [Unmount a project](doc:unmount-a-project) * [Upgrade SBFS](doc:upgrade-sbfs) * [SBFS Log](doc:sbfs-log) * [Uninstall SBFS ](doc:uninstall-sbfs)
