Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP is doubling the maximum throughput capacity per file system from 2 GB/s to 4 GB/s and the maximum SSD IOPS from 80,000 to 160,000, enabling you to accelerate your performance-intensive workloads such as video rendering and database applications.

The new 4 GB/s throughput capacity option delivers up to 2x higher throughput and IOPS performance and offers 2x more in-memory and NVMe read caching, compared to the 2 GB/s throughput capacity option. With the 4 GB/s option, you can drive up to 4 GB/s of read throughput and 160,000 IOPS from SSD storage (6 GB/s of read throughput and 650,000 IOPS from the NVMe read cache) and up to 1.8 GB/s of write throughput.

Starting today, you can create file systems with 4 GB/s of throughput capacity and 160,000 SSD IOPS in the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland). For more information, please visit the FSx for ONTAP documentation and the FSx for NetApp ONTAP product page.
