It provides highly available, and highly performant file shares to support SQL Server Always On Failover Cluster deployments. Using Amazon FSx, you can simplify your deployments, optimize costs with greater license flexibility, increase reliability, and optimize performance. This session covers selecting file systems, maximizing performance, and designing for durability and availability.
STG314: Amazon EFS performance best practices
Featured speaker: Geert Jansen, AWS Storage
Amazon EFS delivers highly available and highly durable file systems that are distributed across an unconstrained number of storage servers, enabling massively parallel access. This means that highly parallelized workloads can drive high levels of aggregate throughput and operations per second. In this session, learn best practices for leveraging this distributed data-storage design. Learn to select the appropriate performance and throughput mode as well as best practices for configuring clients, ingesting data, and monitoring performance.
See you at AWS re:Invent 2021!

Apart from re:Invent, make sure you are up to speed on a remarkably busy month of November for AWS Storage, which was highlighted by the 2nd Annual AWS Storage Day. On 11/9 (11 9’s of durability day!) we had more than 20 launches across the storage portfolio, and many of our customers have use cases that could potentially benefit from some of those updates. This blog channel also has 6 blog posts for AWS Storage Day – highlighting launches for Amazon EFS, AWS Backup, AWS Transfer Family, AWS Storage Gateway, and Amazon S3. Then, on November 18, we introduced Amazon S3 Storage Lens, the first cloud storage analytics solution with support for AWS Organizations to give you organization-wide visibility into object storage, dashboards with point-in-time metrics and trend lines as well as actionable recommendations.
You can stay up to date with all things AWS and re:Invent 2020-2021 by following Amazon Web Services on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. From everyone on the AWS Storage team, we hope thank you for joining us at another AWS re:Invent, and we look forward to seeing you at re:Invent this coming December!
