AWS DataSync now supports copying data to and from Amazon FSx for Lustre, a fully managed service that provides cost-effective, high-performance, scalable storage for compute workloads. Using DataSync, you can quickly and securely perform data movement tasks such as moving data from one FSx for Lustre file system to another, migrating your on-premises data to your FSx for Lustre file system, or copying data between your FSx for Lustre file system and other AWS Storage services such as Amazon S3, Amazon Elastic File System (EFS), or Amazon FSx for Windows File Server. You can also use DataSync for ongoing data transfers between on-premises storage and AWS for processing.

DataSync uses a purpose-built network protocol and scale-out architecture to accelerate data transfer between storage systems and AWS services. It handles moving files and objects, scheduling data transfers, monitoring the progress of transfers, encryption of data, verification of data transfers, and notification of issues. DataSync integrates with Amazon CloudWatch to provide performance metrics, logging, and events. As a fully-managed service, DataSync securely and seamlessly connects to your Amazon FSx for Lustre file system, making it easy for you to move millions of files and petabytes of data without the need for deploying or managing infrastructure in the cloud. In addition, DataSync can help speed up critical hybrid cloud storage workflows in industries that need to move active files into AWS quickly. This includes machine learning in life sciences, video production in media and entertainment, big data analytics in financial services, and seismic research in oil and gas.

This new capability can be used in all regions where AWS DataSync and Amazon FSx for Lustre are available. Learn more by reading the DataSync User Guide and DataSync website. Sign in to the AWS DataSync console to get started.
