Changes Adds support for EFS Intelligent-Tiering, which uses EFS Lifecycle Management to monitor file access patterns and is designed to automatically transition files to and from your corresponding Infrequent Access (IA) storage classes.
Changes EFS now supports account preferences. Utilizing the new capability, users can customize some aspects of their experience using EFS APIs and the EFS Console. The first preference clients are able to set is whether to start using longer File System and Mount Target IDs before EFS migrates to such IDs.
Changes AWS EFS is introducing one-zone file systems.
Changes This release adds support for automatic backups of Amazon EFS file systems to further simplify backup management.
Changes This release adds support for managing EFS file system policies and EFS Access Points.
Changes EFS customers can select a lifecycle policy that automatically moves files that have not been accessed for 7 days into the EFS Infrequent Access (EFS IA) storage class. EFS IA provides price/performance that is cost-optimized for files that are not accessed every day.
Changes EFS customers can now enable Lifecycle Management for all file systems. You can also now select from one of four Lifecycle Management policies (14, 30, 60 and 90 days), to automatically move files that have not been accessed for the period of time defined by the policy, from the EFS Standard storage class to the EFS Infrequent Access (IA) storage class. EFS IA provides price/performance that is cost-optimized for files that are not accessed every day.
Changes Amazon EFS now supports adding tags to file system resources as part of the CreateFileSystem API . Using this capability, customers can now more easily enforce tag-based authorization for EFS file system resources.
Changes Customers can now use the EFS Infrequent Access (IA) storage class to more cost-effectively store larger amounts of data in their file systems. EFS IA is cost-optimized storage for files that are not accessed every day. You can create a new file system and enable Lifecycle Management to automatically move files that have not been accessed for 30 days from the Standard storage class to the IA storage class.
Changes Amazon EFS now allows you to instantly provision the throughput required for your applications independent of the amount of data stored in your file system, allowing you to optimize throughput for your applications performance needs. Starting today, you can provision the throughput your applications require quickly with a few simple steps using AWS Console, AWS CLI or AWS API to achieve consistent performance.
Changes Customers can create encrypted EFS file systems and specify a KMS master key to encrypt it with.
