As part of AWS Storage Day, AWS today announced Amazon File Cache, an upcoming new service on AWS that accelerates and simplifies hybrid cloud workloads. Amazon File Cache provides a high-speed cache on AWS that makes it easier for customers to process file data, regardless of where the data is stored. Amazon File Cache serves as a temporary, high-performance storage location for data stored in on-premises file servers or in file systems or object stores in AWS.

This new service enables customers to make dispersed data sets available to file-based applications on AWS with a unified view and at high speeds with sub-millisecond latencies and up to hundreds of GB/s of throughput. Amazon File Cache is designed to enable a wide variety of cloud bursting workloads and hybrid workflows, ranging from media rendering and transcoding, to electronic design automation (EDA), to big data analytics.

Amazon File Cache will be generally available later this year. To learn more about this service, please sign up for more information.
