Elastifile Cloud File System Now Available on AWS Marketplace

Elastifile, a pioneer of enterprise-grade, scalable file storage for the public cloud, today announced availability of Elastifile Cloud File System on AWS Marketplace, providing Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers with the ability to easily deploy enterprise-grade, scalable file storage in just a few clicks.

As organizations increasingly seek to leverage cloud infrastructure, effective data management has emerged as a critical enabler for seamless integration. However, the vast majority of enterprise applications were designed to interface with file systems and expect to leverage standard NAS protocols (e.g. NFS). As a result, when shifting or bursting on-premises workflows to cloud, organizations need cloud-based file storage to deliver native compatibility...thus eliminating the need for costly, time-consuming application refactoring.

Powered by a dynamically scalable, cloud-native architecture with intelligent object tiering, Elastifile Cloud File System (ECFS) makes cloud integration simpler than ever. ECFS provides POSIX-compliant, enterprise-grade file storage on AWS, unlocking a broad range of cloud storage use cases, including industry-specific workflows such as media rendering, semiconductor design, and traditional enterprise IT (e.g. ERP, CRM). ECFS also integrates seamlessly with Kubernetes, enabling data persistence and sharing across containerized environments. By deploying via AWS Marketplace, customers also benefit from simplified billing with Elastifile included on their existing AWS bill.

"As a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN), Elastifile was already helping organizations leverage AWS to implement and accelerate their cloud-integrated workflows," said Adi Sprachman, Vice President of Product Management at Elastifile. "The introduction of our AWS Marketplace solution further simplifies the deployment and management of enterprise file storage on AWS, thus enabling our customers to spend less time on IT and more time on their core businesses."

Elastifile is generally available on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and bare metal on-premises environments, with Microsoft Azure availability coming soon.
