Using Amazon FSx, you can burst your compute-intensive workloads from on-premises into the Amazon Web Services Cloud by importing data over AWS Direct Connect or VPN. You can access your Amazon FSx file system from on-premises, copy data into your file system as-needed, and run compute-intensive workloads on in-cloud instances.
