Amazon FSx for Lustre announces high-performance HDD-based shared storage for compute workloads

By GIXnews

Amazon FSx for Lustre, a service that provides high-performance shared storage, today announced new Hard Disk Drive (HDD) storage options that make it even more cost effective to power any compute workload with a fast, shared file system. When creating shared file systems for compute workloads, you can now choose between existing SSD storage options and two new HDD storage options, each offering different levels of performance. The HDD options reduce storage costs by up to 80% for throughput-intensive workloads that don’t require the sub-millisecond latencies of SSD storage, including genome analysis, financial simulations, and seismic data processing.
