How Amazon FSx File Gateway works


Improved latency with local caching

Amazon FSx File Gateway provides low-latency performance for frequently accessed data. This enables seamless read and write activity when files are shared between their on-premises locations and the cloud.

Windows-native compatibility

With Amazon FSx File Gateway, you can seamlessly access the Windows-native SMB capabilities of Amazon FSx for Windows File Server such as NTFS, Active Directory integration, and data deduplication.

Enhanced data protection

With access to Amazon FSx for Windows File Server, you can take advantage of automated, crash-consistent backups, and use AWS Backup for centralized backup and retention.


"Expedia Group is in the process of migrating our on-premises SMB file shares to AWS to get out of the business of managing multiple file servers across dozens of offices. The new Amazon FSx File Gateway cache will help us reduce latency for our branch offices and accelerate our migration to AWS to reduce costs and complexity."

 William Weigle, Senior Manager - Expedia Group

“Amazon FSx File Gateway will address many challenges with our ‘expensive’ corporate network drives. I’m excited about the potential for low-latency, on-premises access to highly available and reliable fully managed shared file storage in AWS with significant cost savings compared to our current on-premises solution.”
