Amazon FSx for Windows File Server

WHAT IS SFx?

Amazon FSx for Windows File Server provides a fully managed native Microsoft Windows file system so you can easily move your Windows-based applications that require file storage to AWS. Built on Windows Server, Amazon FSx provides shared file storage with the compatibility and features that your Windows-based applications rely on, including full support for the SMB protocol and Windows NTFS, Active Directory (AD) integration, and Distributed File System (DFS).

Amazon FSx uses SSD storage to provide the fast performance your Windows applications and users expect, with high levels of throughput and IOPS, and consistent sub-millisecond latencies. This compatibility and performance is particularly important when moving workloads that require Windows shared file storage, like CRM, ERP, and.NET applications, as well as home directories. With Amazon FSx, you can launch highly durable and available Windows file systems that can be accessed from up to thousands of compute instances using the industry-standard SMB protocol. Amazon FSx eliminates the typical administrative overhead of managing Windows file servers. You pay for only the resources used, with no upfront costs, minimum commitments, or additional fees.

WHO BENEFITS FROM FSx?

Home Directories

Many organizations have home directories and team shares. These organizations typically need shared access to common data sets with hundreds or thousands of users. You can use Amazon FSx for Windows File Server to create a file system that is accessible by up to hundreds of thousands of users, and establish permissions at the file or folder level. You can easily move existing home directory workloads to Amazon FSx.

Migrate Windows applications to the cloud

Many Windows-based applications and workloads, such as ERP, CRM, and custom-built .NET applications, require shared file storage provided by Windows-based file systems (NTFS) and that use the SMB protocol. Amazon FSx is built on Windows Server and provides you with the native Windows file system features and performance that your applications need from a file store. By providing fully managed native Windows file shares with features like Microsoft AD, DFS Namespaces, DFS Replication, and automatic backups, you can easily migrate Windows-based applications to AWS.

Media and entertainment workflows

Media workflows like media transcoding, processing, and streaming often depend on shared Windows file storage with consistent performance. Amazon FSx for Windows File Server provides you with a shared file system with the high throughput and low latencies these Windows workloads require.

Data Analytics

Data analytics applications consume a high volume of data from a variety of sources, and typically require access from tens to thousands of compute instances. By providing scalable file systems with high throughput and low latencies, Amazon FSx allows you to run data-intensive analytics workloads, like business intelligence and data visualization applications.

Web serving and content management

Content management and web serving applications, like Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and WordPress, store and serve files for websites and internal portals. These applications use shared file storage because multiple web or content servers typically need access to the same files. Amazon FSx is ideal for these workloads because it provides a file system that can be accessed across thousands of instances simultaneously.

Software development environments

Software development environments include source code and build repositories, that reside on shared file storage to support many developers working on the same projects. Amazon FSx enables you to easily move to in-cloud development with no changes to your development workflows by providing shared file storage that is accessible to your developers and their environments.
