Starting today, Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP is increasing the maximum throughput capacity per file system by 2x (from 36 GB/s to 72 GB/s), letting you leverage ONTAP’s data management features for an even broader set of performance-intensive workloads.

FSx for ONTAP file systems can be created with one or multiple Highly-Available (HA) pairs of file servers, each with up to 6 GB/s of throughput capacity. Previously, you could create file systems with up to 6 HA pairs that deliver up to 36 GB/s of read throughput and 6 GB/s of write throughput. Now, you can create file systems with up to 12 HA pairs, delivering up to 72 GB/s of read throughput and 12 GB/s of write throughput—allowing you to migrate even more high-performance ONTAP workloads to AWS.

These new performance improvements are available in the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Sydney). Learn more about these performance improvements in the FSx for ONTAP user guide.
