If you’re interested in a fully managed native Microsoft Windows file system to easily move your Windows-based applications that require file storage to AWS, please submit your information in the the form below.
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.
Amazon FSx for Windows File Server makes it easy for you to launch and use Windows shared file storage for your Windows-based applications. Built on Windows Server, Amazon FSx provides fully managed Windows file servers with the compatibility, features, and performance that Windows-based applications rely on.
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 uses SSD storage to provide high levels of file system throughput and IOPS, and consistent sub-millisecond latencies.
Built on SSD-storage, Amazon FSx is designed to deliver fast, predictable, and consistent performance. Amazon FSx provides up to 2 GB/s of throughput per file system, hundreds of thousands of IOPS, and consistent sub-millisecond latencies for file operations. To get the right performance for your workload, you can choose a throughput level that is independent of your file system size.
Amazon FSx provides storage of up to 64 TB per file system, and throughput that of up to 2GB/s per file system. You can use DFS Namespaces to create shared common namespaces spanning multiple Amazon FSx file systems to scale-out storage and throughput. Each common namespace is capable of scaling out storage to hundreds of petabytes of data, and performance to tens of GB/s of throughput, and millions of IOPs
All Amazon FSx file system data is automatically encrypted at rest and in transit. Encryption of data at-rest uses keys managed with AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS). Data is automatically encrypted before being written to the file system, and automatically decrypted as it is read. Amazon FSx automatically encrypts data-in-transit using SMB Kerberos session keys, when accessed from compute instances that support SMB protocol 3.0 or newer. This includes all Windows versions starting from Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8, and all Linux clients with Samba client version 4.2 or newer.
Compliance: Amazon FSx is PCI-DSS and ISO compliant and HIPAA eligible. For the current list of supported compliance programs see AWS Services in Scope by Compliance Program .
Amazon FSx supports Windows Access Control Lists (ACLs) for fine-grained file and folder access control. For network-level access control, you can use Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) security groups to control access to your Amazon FSx resources. Amazon FSx is integrated with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to control the actions that your AWS IAM users and groups can take on specific Amazon FSx resources. Amazon FSx integrates with AWS CloudTrail to monitor and log administration actions.
You access your Amazon FSx file system from your Amazon VPCs. You can configure firewall settings and control network access to your Amazon FSx file systems using Amazon VPC Security Groups and VPC Network ACLs.
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.
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 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 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.
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 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.
