Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) has increased the maximum throughput per file system by 3x to 10 GiB/s of read throughput and 3 GiB/s of write throughput.

Amazon EFS provides serverless, fully elastic file storage that makes it simple to set up and run file workloads in the cloud. With these new throughput limits, you can easily run more performance-intensive workloads on AWS using Amazon EFS, such as machine learning, genomics, and data analytics applications.

The increased throughput limits are immediately available for Amazon EFS file systems using the Elastic Throughput mode in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Dublin) Regions. To learn more, see the Amazon EFS Documentation or create a file system using the Amazon EFS Console, API, or AWS CLI.
