Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) is now available in the Asia Pacific (Sydney) region.

Amazon EFS provides simple, scalable file storage for use with Amazon EC2 instances in the AWS Cloud. Amazon EFS is easy to use and offers a simple interface that allows you to create and configure file systems quickly and easily. With Amazon EFS, storage capacity is elastic, growing and shrinking automatically as you add and remove files, so your applications have the storage they need, when they need it.

Amazon EFS is designed for high availability and durability, and provides performance for a broad spectrum of workloads and applications, including Big Data and analytics, media processing workflows, content management, web serving, and home directories.

You can also access your Amazon EFS filesystems directly from on-premises servers over AWS Direct Connect, allowing you to migrate data sets to EFS, enable cloud bursting scenarios, or back up your on-premises data to EFS.

Amazon EFS is also available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland). Please visit our product page for more information.
