Amazon FSx for OpenZFS, a service that provides fully managed file storage powered by the popular OpenZFS file system, now provides 14% higher levels of I/O operations per second (IOPS) at no additional cost, bringing the new maximum IOPS level to 400,000. The increased IOPS levels enable you to improve price–performance for IOPS-intensive workloads like Oracle databases and optimize costs for workloads like periodic reporting jobs with IOPS requirements that vary over time. 

The higher IOPS performance is available now for all new Single-AZ 2 or Multi-AZ file systems in the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio, N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland, Frankfurt), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo, Singapore, Sydney).
