Disrupting the Economics of File Storage with Amazon EFS One Zone Storage Classes

Learn about two new Amazon EFS One Zone storage classes that are disrupting the economics of cloud file storage, and paving the way for workloads previously thought to be better served as self-managed file systems. Applications running in self-managed, single-site environments on-premises, or on self-managed single zone file systems in the cloud, that don’t require highest availability and durability of Amazon EFS Standard storage classes, could be costing you too much. Learn how Amazon EFS One Zone storage classes can reduce your file storage costs by 47%, when compared to Amazon EFS Standard storage classes. Workloads like development build and staging, simulations, content management, and secondary data that can be easily recreated are ideal for Amazon EFS One Zone storage classes.
