Amazon Elastic File System announces 400% increase in read operations



  • Posted On: Apr 1, 2020

    Starting today, Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) General Purpose mode file systems support up to 35,000 read operations per second, a 400% increase from the previous limit of 7,000. Maximum write operations are unchanged at 7,000 per second.

    General Purpose mode (GP mode) is the default performance mode for Amazon EFS. It offers the lowest per-operation latency and is the recommended choice for most applications. Amazon EFS also offers the Max I/O performance mode which can scale to higher levels of aggregate throughput and supports over 500,000 operations per second with slightly higher metadata latencies than GP mode.
