Scalable File Service

Scalable File Service (SFS) provides fully hosted file storage with complete share capabilities, featuring high performance and high reliability. SFS supports the POSIX interface and provides shared access for Elastic Cloud Servers (ECSs), Bare Metal Servers (BMSs), and containers created on Cloud Container Engine (CCE).

Product Advantages
  • Durable

    The multi-level reliable architecture ensures a data durability of 99.99999999% (10 nines) and a service availability of 99.95%.

  • Efficient

    Various file storage services are available, meeting different performance requirements, such as high IOPS, low latency, and high bandwidth.

  • Easy to Use

    Fully-hosted file storage extricates users from complex hardware deployment and maintenance, eliminating their worries about hardware infrastructures.

  • Secure

    HUAWEI CLOUD security technologies comprehensively secure user data. VPC-based user authentication isolates a user's data from others.

HPC

File Sharing

High-IOPS and low-latency SFS Turbo is recommended. For companies with a large number of departments and employees, documents and data can be shared and accessed using the file systems.

Advantages

High Durability

The designed durability is 99.99999999% (10 nines), preventing data from being lost.

Low Cost

Storage can be scaled up or down on demand so you only pay for what you need.

Media Processing

Media Processing

High-bandwidth and large-capacity SFS is recommended. Shared file storage facilitates multi-layer HD and 4K video editing, transcoding, composition, and video on demand (VoD).

Advantages

High Durability

The throughput increases as the file system expands. The calculation formula is as follows: 0.02 MB/s x Storage capacity (GB) + 100 MB/s

Low Cost

Storage can be scaled up or down on demand so you only pay for what you need.
