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.
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.
High availability at lower costs (pay-per-use – no license costs)
With Multi-AZ Block Storage for EKS, workload restarts aren’t necessary in failover events.
Efficient data protection and storage in the AWS Cloud. Additional visibility through storage monitoring, advanced logging, and regular configuration compliance checks.
Seamlessly integrated with AWS Cloud / with services available in AWS, including billing and monitoring. Third-party tool integration is possible via ONTAP REST API.
