New FSx File Release Feature For Lustre To Free Up Storage Capacity
Amazon FSx for Lustre offers shared storage with scalability and high performance of the open-source Lustre file systems to support Linux-based workloads. It helps customers avoid storage bottlenecks, increase utilization of compute resources, and decrease time to value for workloads like AI and ML.
AWS launched a new file release for FSx for Lustre that allows users to effectively manage their data by freeing up storage space occupied by synchronized files with Amazon S3.
“This feature helps you manage your data lifecycle by releasing file data that has been synchronized with Amazon S3,” said AWS. “File release frees up storage space so that you can continue writing new data to the file system while retaining on-demand access to released files through the FSx for Lustre lazy loading from Amazon S3.”
The new file release feature ensures that only data from the specified directory, and data meeting the minimum time since the last access, is released. AWS said file release will be a valuable tool for data lifecycle management as it helps efficiently move less frequently accessed data to S3.
