Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) has increased the maximum number of Access Points per file system from 120 to 1,000, enabling you to control file system access permissions across a larger number of applications in multi-tenant environments.

Amazon EFS Access Points are application-specific entry points into your file system which are designed to enforce a specified POSIX identity and root directory for connected clients. You can use EFS Access Points to more easily isolate data between applications sharing a single EFS file system. With this launch, you can now utilize up to 1,000 EFS Access Points per EFS file system for higher scale multi-tenant environments.

The increased EFS Access Point limit is available for all file systems in all regions supporting EFS, including the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions, but excluding the AWS China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the AWS China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To learn more, see the Amazon EFS documentation and create a file system using the Amazon EFS Console.
