Amazon Web Services continues to chip away at the enterprise storage market, with plans for a new service designed to be a nimbler alternative to network attached storage (NAS) appliances.
The Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) will provide a shared, low-latency file system for project teams and organizations, such as a video production company, that need to share large files and access them quickly.
“The file system is the missing element in the cloud today,” Amazon Web Services head Andy Jassy said Thursday at the AWS Summit in San Francisco. The service is not yet available for full commercial use, though a preview will be available soon.
