With the continuously increasing amount of online resources and data such use cases as discovery, maintenance and inter-operation become more and more complex. In particular, data management is becoming one of the main issues with respect to both scientific (large scale simulations or data mining applications) as well as consumer use cases (accessing photos or email attachments on mobile devices). We believe that one of the main bottlenecks blocking development of solutions providing truly seamless developer and user experience is the concept of file and filesystem. We present Filess, vision and architecture of file-less information systems where files are not necessary, neither in the application nor operating system layers.
