AWS Batch now supports FSx for Lustre’s new options, a persistent storage and a second-generation scratch storage, both announced on Februrary 24.  

AWS Batch dynamically provisions the optimal quantity and type of compute resources (e.g., CPU, GPU, or memory-optimized instances) based on the volume and specific resource requirements of the batch jobs submitted. AWS Batch plans, schedules, and executes your batch computing workloads across AWS compute services and features, such as Amazon EC2 and EC2 Spot Instances. 

Amazon FSx for Lustre integrates with AWS Batch though EC2 Launch Templates. AWS Batch will automatically and dynamically size instances to job resource requirements, and use existing file systems when launching instances and running jobs.
