TECH:: Amazon AWS: File services enter the cloud!

This week at Amazon AWS Summit, the new Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) was announced.

From the EFS product page:

Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) is a file storage service for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. Amazon EFS is easy to use and provides a simple interface that allows you to create and configure file systems quickly and easily. With Amazon EFS, storage capacity is elastic, growing and shrinking automatically as you add and remove files, so your applications have the storage they need, when they need it.

Amazon EFS supports the Network File System version 4 (NFSv4) protocol, so the applications and tools that you use today work seamlessly with Amazon EFS. Multiple Amazon EC2 instances can access an Amazon EFS file system at the same time, providing a common data source for workloads and applications running on more than one instance.

This is HUGE news – and not just for Amazon. As the Technical Marketing Engineer for NFS at NetApp, you can imagine how excited I am about this.

Why?

Amazon has just validated using NAS in the cloud.
