Amazon FSX for Win File Server

Move to Managed File Storage / Break Free from Legacy File Storage

Amazon FSx for Windows File Server provides a fully managed, native Microsoft Windows file system that makes it easy to move Windows-based applications that require file storage to AWS.

Moving file storage workloads to the cloud has been one of the main ways forward-looking companies have been able to:

  • Optimize cost by eliminating high CAPEX and reducing unexpected costs (software and hardware add-ons), reduce over provisioning, get exactly the storage you need and scale as you grow, and optimize storage space with deduplication
  • Immediately gain agility and scale to better support business growth
  • Have the ability to improve redundancy and durability by using multi-AZ (failovers transparent to users and applications) and backup
  • Significantly reduce server and storage management cost and overhead
  • Reduce footprint required in data center
