AWS Cloud Storage w/ Local Server NTFS Permissions

I am putting more and more data in the cloud; I would really like to be able to delegate domain user permissions to files locally with Active directory/NTFS Permissions.

Currently I am using TnTDrive, and mapping drives as removable storage. Though I don’t believe it matters what 3rd party software is used.
I know this will not work natively because you cannot add/remove attributes to the folders.
Presumably because the folders & files are actually buckets & objects.

Is there any other conceivable way to do this?

NTFS permissions require an NTFS formatted file system, S3 is nothing like an NTFS file system.

You could theoretically implement a file system driver that used a database to store permissions in a similar way to NTFS, however this would be a non trivial exercise.

How about running a Windows EC2 instance with EBS storage ?

many of the cheapr/free cloud based storage systems are not able to support what you want. you need a srtorage solution that can support ACL. Google, for example.
AWS has some basic permissons but it's unlikely to meet your requirements as they are quite simple.

If you want to integrate it with AD to get single sign-on, you'll be looking at the top end cloud storage systems that are not cheap.

Does anyone have any other examples of AD integrated cloud storage services or ideas?

Gladinet has said integration in their enterprise level plan; though it really boils down to a share manager which, albeit is a bit more organized, but can still be done with my current resources.
