AWS::FSx::FileSystem - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::FSx::FileSystem

The AWS::FSx::FileSystem resource is an Amazon FSx resource type that specifies an Amazon FSx file system. You can create any of the following supported file system types:

  • Amazon FSx for Lustre

  • Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP

  • Amazon FSx for OpenZFS

  • Amazon FSx for Windows File Server

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

{ "Type" : "AWS::FSx::FileSystem", "Properties" : { "BackupId" : String, "FileSystemType" : String, "FileSystemTypeVersion" : String, "KmsKeyId" : String, "LustreConfiguration" : LustreConfiguration, "OntapConfiguration" : OntapConfiguration, "OpenZFSConfiguration" : OpenZFSConfiguration, "SecurityGroupIds" : [ String, ... ], "StorageCapacity" : Integer, "StorageType" : String, "SubnetIds" : [ String, ... ], "Tags" : [ Tag, ... ], "WindowsConfiguration" : WindowsConfiguration } }

Properties

BackupId

The ID of the file system backup that you are using to create a file system. For more information, see CreateFileSystemFromBackup.

The type of Amazon FSx file system, which can be LUSTRE, WINDOWS, ONTAP, or OPENZFS.

Required: Yes

Type: String

Update requires: Replacement

FileSystemTypeVersion

(Optional) For FSx for Lustre file systems, sets the Lustre version for the file system that you're creating. Valid values are 2.10 and 2.12:

  • 2.10 is supported by the Scratch and Persistent_1 Lustre deployment types.

  • Amazon FSx for Lustre PERSISTENT_1 and PERSISTENT_2 deployment types only.

    SCRATCH_1 and SCRATCH_2 types are encrypted using the Amazon FSx service AWS KMS key for your account.

  • Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP

  • Amazon FSx for OpenZFS

  • Amazon FSx for Windows File Server

Required: No

Type: String

Update requires: Replacement

StorageCapacity

Sets the storage capacity of the file system that you're creating. StorageCapacity is required if you are creating a new file system.

FSx for Lustre file systems - The amount of storage capacity that you can configure depends on the value that you set for StorageType and the Lustre DeploymentType, as follows:

  • For SCRATCH_2, PERSISTENT_2 and PERSISTENT_1 deployment types using SSD storage type, the valid values are 1200 GiB, 2400 GiB, and increments of 2400 GiB.

  • For PERSISTENT_1 HDD file systems, valid values are increments of 6000 GiB for 12 MB/s/TiB file systems and increments of 1800 GiB for 40 MB/s/TiB file systems.

  • For SCRATCH_1 deployment type, valid values are 1200 GiB, 2400 GiB, and increments of 3600 GiB.

FSx for ONTAP file systems - The amount of storage capacity that you can configure is from 1024 GiB up to 196,608 GiB (192 TiB).

FSx for OpenZFS file systems - The amount of storage capacity that you can configure is from 64 GiB up to 524,288 GiB (512 TiB). If you are creating a file system from a backup, you can specify a storage capacity equal to or greater than the original file system's storage capacity.

FSx for Windows File Server file systems - The amount of storage capacity that you can configure depends on the value that you set for StorageType as follows:

  • For SSD storage, valid values are 32 GiB-65,536 GiB (64 TiB).

  • For HDD storage, valid values are 2000 GiB-65,536 GiB (64 TiB).
