Amazon File Cache is a fully managed, scalable, and high-speed cache on AWS for processing file data stored in disparate locations—including on premises. Amazon File Cache accelerates and simplifies cloud bursting and hybrid workflows including media and entertainment, financial services, health and life sciences, microprocessor design, manufacturing, weather forecasting, and energy.

You can create a File Cache on AWS in just a few minutes and link it to multiple on-premises network file systems (NFS) file systems, in cloud file systems (Amazon FSx for OpenZFS, Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP), and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets. Datasets from these various locations appear to clients in a single, unified namespace. Amazon File Cache is designed to automatically load your on-premises or cloud data into the cache when the data is accessed for the first time by your workloads. With Amazon File Cache you do not need to manage the movement of data, or know in advance which files are needed to run your workload. File Cache enables you to start running your workloads without requiring a full data set to be copied. Amazon File Cache is designed to deliver consistent sub millisecond latency, up to hundreds of GB/s of throughput, and up to millions of operations per second, helping you speed up workload completion times and optimize compute utilization.

Amazon File Cache is available in the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US East (N. Virginia), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London).
