Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) One Zone is now available in 5 additional regions, reducing storage costs by 47% compared to Amazon EFS Standard storage classes, while maintaining the Amazon EFS capabilities that customers love.  

Amazon EFS is a simple, serverless, set-and-forget elastic file system for use with AWS cloud services and on-premises resources, and is built to scale on demand to petabytes without disrupting applications. With Amazon EFS, you can grow and shrink your file systems automatically as you add and remove files, eliminating the need to provision and manage capacity to accommodate growth.

Today’s launch adds Europe (London) Region, Europe (Paris) Region, Canada (Central) Region, China (Beijing) Region operated by Beijing Sinnet Technology Co., Ltd., and China (Ningxia) Region operated by Ningxia Western Cloud Data Technology Co., Ltd. to the list of regions where Amazon EFS One Zone is already available.
