Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) Replication is now available in 10 more AWS Regions: Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Hyderabad), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Melbourne), Europe (Milan), Europe (Spain), Europe (Zurich), Middle East (Bahrain), Middle East (UAE), in addition to the 19 AWS Regions and 2 AWS GovCloud (US) Regions where it was previously supported. With this launch, EFS Replication is available in all AWS Regions where EFS is supported.

Amazon EFS provides serverless, fully elastic file storage that makes it simple to set up and run file workloads in the cloud. Amazon EFS Replication enables you to easily maintain a separate, up-to-date copy of your file system for compliance, localized data access, and testing/development use cases. You can automatically replicate data across AWS Regions, without needing to manually monitor and synchronize data changes. Before today, EFS Replication was available in 19 AWS Regions and 2 AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. Starting today, you can use EFS Replication in 10 additional AWS Regions, allowing you to easily replicate your file data in all AWS Regions where EFS is supported.

To learn more, please see the EFS documentation. To get started, configure replication for existing file systems in just a few clicks using the Amazon EFS Console, AWS CLI, and APIs.
