The next generation of Amazon FSx for Lustre file systems, built on AWS Graviton processors, provide three improvements to performance and price. First, the new file systems provide up to 5x higher throughput per terabyte (up to 1 GB/s per terabyte) compared to previous generation file systems. Second, with support for client instances with multiple network interfaces, you can now drive up to 400 Gbps of network bandwidth on Amazon EC2 instances such as P4d and DL1. Third, the next generation of FSx for Lustre file systems reduce your cost of throughput by up to 60% compared to previous generation file systems.
Using the next generation of FSx for Lustre file systems, you can accelerate execution of machine learning, high-performance computing, media & entertainment, and financial simulations workloads while reducing your cost of storage. To help you further optimize your storage costs, the next generation of FSx for Lustre is designed to enable data compression so you can reduce storage consumption without adversely impacting file system performance. Similar to previous generation file systems, you can also link the next generation file systems to Amazon S3 buckets, allowing you to access and process data concurrently from both a high-performance file system and from the S3 API.
The next generation of FSx for Lustre file systems are available in US East (N. Virginia & Ohio), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt, Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo). For more information about this new file system options, see the Amazon FSx for Lustre documentation.
