Using Data Repositories with Amazon FSx for Lustre

Amazon FSx for Lustre provides high-performance file systems optimized for fast workload processing. It can support workloads such as machine learning, high performance computing (HPC), video processing, financial modeling, and electronic design automation (EDA). These workloads commonly require data to be presented using a scalable, high-speed file system interface for data access. They typically have datasets stored on long-term durable data repositories like Amazon S3 or on-premises storage. Amazon FSx for Lustre is natively integrated with data repositories such as Amazon S3, making it easier to process datasets with the Lustre file system.
