I have to share out ~2TB of files over VPN to endpoints that need SMB access. Rather than creating a ~2TB persistent disk, How could I mount a google cloud storage bucket and share it from my windows server instance? I know in Linux I use FUSE and there are 3rd party apps like TNT-Drive, but is there any suggested or native way of doing it?
Currently there is no direct way of mounting a GCS bucket to a Windows server.
As mentioned in your message you need to depend upon some third-party tool like cyberduck.
I have also found a similar discussion thread, where a community member suggested some other third party software and alternatives for this concern.
