HERE Technologies Scales Up Binary Artifact Repository Using Amazon EFS

HERE uses Amazon EFS to store 1.2 million artifacts in more than 300 repositories, adding up to more than 20 TB. The system serves 750,000 downloads and 50,000 uploads each day from more than 1,000 users and continuous-integration systems. The elasticity of Amazon EFS has helped HERE reduce total cost of ownership compared to managing its own NFS servers and storage.

“Using Amazon EFS, we don’t have to spend time or money overprovisioning to meet growing demand,” says Suresh Prem, principal systems engineer at HERE. “We use exactly as much as we need, and we only pay for what we use.”
