Product Advantages
  • Durable

    Fault failover ensures 99.95% service availability and distributed storage with multiple data replicas ensures 99.99999999% availability.

  • Efficient

    File system bandwidth grows as capacity is expanded. The throughput can be calculated as follows: 0.02 MB/s x file system capacity (GB) + 100 MB/s.

  • Easy to Use

    File shares can be created within seconds. Storage capacity is available on demand and can be expanded to 4 PB in just one click.

  • Secure

    Access to file systems is secure and under permission control. VPC-based user authentication ensures data isolation between users.

Application Scenarios
  • Media Processing

  • File Sharing

  • Content Management and Web Services

  • Offline File Backup

Media Processing

Shared file storage facilitates multi-layer HD and 4K video editing, transcoding, composition, and video on demand (VoD).

Advantages

High Performance

Throughput scales as the file system expands, ensuring low latency and interruption-free operations.

Low Cost

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