AWS’ 7 New Cloud Storage Products; NetApp, Oracle, Cloudflare Support
From the new AWS Mountpoint for Amazon S3 to expanding support for copying data to and from other clouds like Oracle and NetApp, here’s seven new AWS cloud storage offerings just launched.
Scale IOPS Separately From Amazon FSx Storage
Amazon FSx for Windows File Server provides managed file storage built on the Windows Server. A new feature now enables users to select and update the level of I/O operations per second (IOPS) separately from storage capacity on the file system.
Prior to this recent launch, the IOPS performance level for accessing data on a users’ file SSD storage disks was fixed at a ratio of 3 IOPS per GiB of storage capacity. Now, customers can configure SSD IOPS independently from storage capacity up to a ratio of 500 IOPS per GiB.
“This new capability enables you to improve price-performance for IOPS-intensive workloads like SQL Server databases and optimize costs for workloads with IOPS requirements that vary over time like periodic reporting jobs,” said AWS in a blog post.
Users can update their file system’s SSD IOPS level in just a few minutes without impacting file system availability, enabling optimized costs and accelerate time-to-results for workloads.
