Multi-AZ Block Storage for EKS

Multi-AZ (Availabiliy Zone) block storage for EKS clusters based on Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP, including additional features such as fast cloning, storage deduplication, and synchronization with NetApp on-prem storage.

Workloads with many small files or legacy components rely to a very high degree on block-based storage. At the same time, modern applications must be highly available. However, conventional EBS storage is always limited to only one availability zone (AZ).

NetApp ONTAP’s native capabilities address these challenges by combining FSx and EKS.

Ours Consulting Services

  • We provide a proof-of-concept cluster built with Infrastructure as Code so you can verify that the solution is compatible with your business requirements.
  • Our solution experts then help you build an architecture specific to your use cases, adding Day 2 components for configuration compliance verification, storage metrics analysis, third-party storage management solution connectivity, and CloudWatch-based logging.
  • We are happy to support you in all phases of your cloud journey – based on AWS best practices and proven tools such as Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP


Our solution based on Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP enables multi-AZ block storage for EKS clusters. In addition, our customers automatically get other features such as fast cloning, storage duplication, and synchronization with NetApp on-prem storage.

For EBS storage to be offloaded to another AZ, we create a storage backend across two AZs for multi-AZ block storage, which means that only one managed node group is required for EKS.

The workloads are then automatically tolerant of AZ failures. This also eliminates the need to develop and operate a custom replication solution such as DRBD.
