Amazon S3 File Gateway increases the number of supported file shares per gateway from 10 to 50 file shares. Previously, a single gateway could only support up to 10 file shares. With this release, gateway admins can optimize resources, and save time and money by creating and managing up to 50 file shares from a single gateway.

Amazon S3 File Gateway users who have underutilized gateway resources, can add more shares and support more end users with fewer gateways and resources. By having fewer resources dedicated to gateways, customers will also save on infrastructure costs. Having fewer gateways to manage will give gateway administrators more time to devote to other activities.

Amazon S3 File Gateway enables your on-premises applications to seamlessly store files as objects in Amazon S3, and access them using industry standard file access protocols such as NFS and SMB. You can use Amazon S3 File Gateway for migrating on-premises file data to AWS while maintaining fast on-premises access to recently accessed data, backing up on-premises file data to AWS, and providing on-premises applications low latency access to data stored in Amazon S3.

This capability is now available on new gateways in all commercial regions including AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. For existing gateways, this new capability will be made available during the next scheduled software update.
