Performance and scale

High-speed, low-latency file storage in the cloud

Amazon FSx for OpenZFS delivers one of the lowest file storage latencies available in the cloud. It is built on the latest AWS compute, disk, and networking technologies, providing fast, consistent latencies of a few hundred microseconds for your high-performance workloads with even lower latencies for frequently accessed data.

Throughput and IOPS performance

Amazon FSx for OpenZFS is built on the AWS Graviton family of processors, supporting up to 12.5 gigabytes per second (GB/s) of throughput and up to 1 million IOPS for frequently accessed cached data. For data accessed from persistent disk storage, FSx for OpenZFS file systems deliver up to 4 GB/s and up to 160,000 IOPS. You can also enable data compression on your file system to help increase your effective throughput.

Scalable performance for up to thousands of clients

FSx for OpenZFS supports simultaneous access from up to thousands of clients so that you can deliver shared, high-performance file storage for users or applications at scale. With support for multiple parallel connections per client, you can deliver your file system’s maximum levels of throughput and IOPS even for just a single client.

Cost optimization

Flexible storage and performance capacity

Amazon FSx for OpenZFS lets you independently set your storage and performance capacity to optimize your file system for your specific workload needs. You can scale your provisioned throughput at any time to adapt your file system as your needs evolve.

ZFS-powered storage efficiency capabilities

Amazon FSx for OpenZFS is powered by the popular OpenZFS file system, which was designed to provide high levels of storage efficiency. Amazon FSx for OpenZFS supports the latest Z-Standard and LZ4 compression technologies, which can help you reduce your storage costs for high-performance FSx for OpenZFS file systems and backup storage. It also supports multiple data containers (volumes) per file system, thin provisioning, and user or group storage quotas to enable you to efficiently support multiple teams, applications, and use cases within a single file system.

Pay-as-you-go billing model

With Amazon FSx, you pay only for the resources you use. You are billed for file systems based on the storage capacity (per GB-month), SSD IOPS (per IOPS-month), and throughput capacity (per MBps-month) that you provision. You are billed by the second, ensuring that you only pay for resources for the period of time when you’re using them.

Accessibility

Support for the latest versions of NFS

Amazon FSx for OpenZFS provides full support for NFS v3, v4.0, v4.1, and v4.2 to help you migrate your NFS-based or other ZFS-based on-premises applications and storage to AWS, and build new cloud-native applications easily using a simple, highly available, high-performance NFS endpoint.

Accessible from AWS compute instances and containers

Amazon FSx for OpenZFS file systems supports thousands of simultaneous clients running in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), VMware Cloud on AWS, Amazon WorkSpaces, and Amazon AppStream 2.0 instances.

Administration and management

Rich ZFS capabilities for working with data

Amazon FSx for OpenZFS provides rich ZFS capabilities for working with data, like point-in-time snapshots and in-place data cloning, natively via the FSx API. With snapshots, you can easily track historical versions of your data and applications, and restore these versions with a click of a button. With data cloning, you can clone data in place to quickly test features and changes without interrupting your existing users or applications, and without needing to duplicate your data. Clones are created almost instantly, they consume no additional capacity upon creation, and any data modifications are isolated from your original dataset.

Simple, flexible administration

With Amazon FSx for OpenZFS, you have full flexibility and control over how you administer your file systems. You can manage your file systems using the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), and AWS SDK.

Integrated with AWS services

With Amazon FSx for OpenZFS, you can easily control who can administer your file systems, volumes, and backups—such as create, update, and delete—using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). You can monitor storage and performance metrics using Amazon CloudWatch, monitor and secure API calls using AWS CloudTrail and IAM, and manage file systems using AWS CloudFormation.

Availability and data protection

Automatic file system backups for disaster recovery

Amazon FSx for OpenZFS automatically takes highly durable, daily file-system backups to Amazon S3. You can modify your backup schedule, take additional backups of your file system, or restore your existing backups to a new file system at any time. Backups are point-in-time consistent, incremental, easy to manage, and quick to create and restore. To provide additional layers of data protection and meet business continuity, disaster recovery, and compliance requirements, you can also copy these file system backups across AWS Regions.

Easy file-level restore with snapshots

Amazon FSx for OpenZFS supports near instant point-in-time volume snapshots that are stored directly within your file system. End users can easily restore volumes to past snapshots, or even undo changes and compare versions of individual files or directories.

Security and compliance

Encryption
