Why should you use Pismo File Mount for your file system project?
You want a stable and field proven file system platform to build on, designed and supported based on decades of industry experience.
You want to use the programming language and development tools you are already familiar with.
You want to use platform tech that provides the most architectural flexibility for your application, avoiding unnecessary platform and tool dependencies.
You want the option of deploying your project on Windows, OSX, and Linux.
How is Pismo Technic different from other file system platform developers?
We do not charge developer or upfront license fees. We believe commercial developers should not pay for platform tech until they are able to successfully deploy it to customers.
We do not require licensing for use of our tech in internally deployed commercial projects. If you use PFM only for internal projects and you are satisfied with community support, you can use our tech without charge.
We believe that deploying and supporting software in the field is difficult enough without having to deal with DRM and license enforcement mechanisms in platform tech. PFM uses a lightweight branding mechanism for commercial licensees, but is otherwise DRM free.
We provide free access to our tech to non commercial developers, such as students and hobbyists.
The following new packages are released and available on the download page:
Pismo File Mount Audit Package build 177

This release addresses a compatibility regression that shows up with some applications on writable PFM file systems while Microsoft Security Essentials or Windows Defender has real-time scanning enabled. All users and developers are encouraged to update.
