Pismo Technic Inc.

Pismo Technic specializes in portable file system development technology, enabling our customers and users to build, deploy, and use, file system extending applications on all major desktop and server operating systems. To learn more about our file system technology, visit the Pismo File Mount page.

Using Pismo File Mount, you can build custom file systems for Windows, Mac, and Linux, using the programming language and development tools you are already comfortable with. To learn more about building file systems using Pismo Technic technology, check out the PFM Dev Kit documentation , or download the PFM Audit Package and PFM Dev Kit from the download page.

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 the ability to design and implement your project how you see fit, avoiding unnecessary architectural enforcement and platform and tool dependecies.
  • You want the option of deploying your project on all of the three major desktop and server operating systems.
  • You want to work with a company that specializes in file system technology, not web design or online marketing.

How is Pismo Technic different from other file system platform developers?

  • We believe commercial developers should pay for platform tech that they have been able to successfully deploy to customers. Until you are able to ship product using our tech to your customers, we do not want your money.
  • 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 and limited e-mail 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.
