Video: Cloud Volumes Service for AWS Overview
With consistently high performance, over 450k IOPS, Cloud Volumes Service provides shared persistent storage with high throughput and low latency that meets the demands of large databases and HPC applications, like: Software builds, Genomic sequencing, Video rendering and transcoding, EDA, Financial simulation models, Oil and gas 3D modeling and Fluid dynamics.
Cloud Volumes Service for AWS delivers fully-managed file services for both NFS, SMB, or dual protocol support.
To process, store, and analyze massive amounts of data, your shared file service needs lightning-fast, highly reliable storage solutions. Cloud Volumes Services for AWS is up to the challenge. It enables running HPC workloads in the cloud that benefits from elastic computing. This can be far less expensive than running on-prem and takes significantly fewer resources.
After failing to meet their performance goals with self-managed, cloud-based NFS servers and cloud-native file share services, WuXi NextCODE found that only Cloud Volumes Service delivered the performance they needed to optimize their use of massive genomic data. With Cloud Volumes Service they can rapidly integrate data on-the-fly to deliver unprecedented computational efficiency to their customers.
NetApp Cloud Volumes Service was compared against alternative cloud services. It successfully completed tests that the other services were unable to run without timeouts or failures.
Cloud Volumes Service for AWS provides scalable, highly available,
A software development firm wanted to migrate its Windows-based application to the cloud, but found that a lack of support for SMBv3 required them to either refactor their data or build their own SMB shared storage and file service solution. Upon deciding to build their own, they quicky found that the undertaking required additional resources and personnel that strained their budget.
They tested Cloud Volumes Service because it provided a solution for cloud based shared storage for Windows Server without all the overhead and administration involved in a build-your-own solution. They were able to free up engineers and resources to speed up their development cycle and get their software to market faster.
Many critical business workloads and processes require multiple applications working together consistently and reliably. If a link fails, the entire business process is impacted. To move critical business processes to the cloud you need to be able to provide file services that provide consistent, predictable performance as well as high availability. Cloud Volumes Service for AWS provides the required availability, performance and simplicity needed..
>A company needed to migrate cloud infrastructure applications that were critical to their revenue generating operations. The applications demanded consistently high performance and availability that other cloud file services didn’t offer. The organization needed a cloud service, rather than VMs to run and OSes to patch. Running Linux or Windows servers for their NFS and SMB file shares added cost and complexity, and did not provide the performance and availability needed.
Cloud Volumes Service for AWS offered support for both their NFS and SMB protocols, as well as three rapidly adjustable performance tiers. The company was able to consistently obtain up to 450k IOPS. Their data at rest is also encrypted by Cloud Volumes Service, adding an extra layer of security.
We always had some time outs or some file failures, but when we tested this using NetApp Cloud Volumes, it actually finished in less than an hour. That was a great breakthrough for us.
We love how NetApp has invested, leaning forward into the cloud, so that we can enable our customer’s success.
Choose the performance level that best suits your application requirements and adjust on-the-fly... without having to move your data.

Cloud Volumes Service for AWS is the only cloud file service to provide guaranteed SLAs based on:
Cloud Backup Service is an integrated add-on feature for Cloud Volumes Service. To protect your data, it delivers fully managed backup and restores capabilities and a long-term archive of your cloud data.
Cloud Volumes Service for AWS is a fast, highly available and enormously scalable platform for creating cloud-based NFS and SMB file systems for UNIX and Windows platforms.
Cloud Sync – Cloud Sync is NetApp’s service for rapid and secure data synchronization.
Whether you need to transfer files between on-premises file shares and Cloud Volumes Service for AWS or between Cloud Volumes in different regions, Cloud Sync copies the files where you need them quickly and securely.
Cloud Sync is integrated and included for free with Cloud Volumes Service for AWS.
SnapShot Copies – Our zero-footprint snapshot copies don‘t cost you additional cloud data capacity.
You can run Snapshots manually or on a set schedule.
Rapid Clones – Create new copies of datasets based on a clone of a point-in-time snapshot copy.
Data Encryption – All data at rest is encrypted by default, so your data is always protected.
