Scalable File Service (SFS)

Scalable File Service (SFS) provides a completely hosted shared file storage for Elastic Cloud Servers (ECSs). It is compatible with the Network File System (NFS) protocol. SFS can be expanded to petabytes, and features high performance, capable of handling massive data and bandwidth-intensive applications.

Stable

Fault failover for a service availability of 99.95%; multi-copy data storage for a data durability of 99.99999999%

Efficient

The total bandwidth of a file system grows as the file system capacity is expanded. The file system throughput can be as high as 0.02 MB/s x File system capacity GB + 100 MB/s.

Easy to Use

A file share can be created within seconds. The storage capacity is allocated on demand, and can be expanded to 10 PB by one click.

Secure

HUAWEI CLOUD security technology protects user data in an all-round way. VPC-based user authentication isolates data of one user from that of another.

Offline File Backup

Offline File Backup

Sets up a cloud private line to interconnect the customer's data center and the customer's VPC, and uses the cloud service as the NFS proxy for offline servers to access SFS.

Advantages

  • High Durability

    Designed durability: 99.99999999%.

  • Low Cost

    Storage resources can be expanded and shrunk on demand, and are charged per use. SFS is compatible with the software running in the customer's data center, without the need to make any modification on SFS.

Function Description

Support for Mainstream Protocols

SFS is compatible with NFS v3, and can work on various operating systems.

Multi-instance Shared Storage

In the same region, ECS instances in one availability zone (AZ) can access file shares in another AZ.

Elastic Service

The file system capacity is resizable (expanded and shrunk) dynamically to adapt to service changes, and the whole resizing process does not interrupt applications.

Linearly Scalable Performance

The file system throughput can be as high as 0.02 MB/s x File system capacity (GB) + 100 MB/s. The performance increases linearly as the capacity grows.

Security Control

A file system can be shared exclusively to ECSs in the designated VPC.
