This is the use of a cloud-based file version of a more traditional Network File System (NFS).

  • AWS is named Elastic File System, which emerged from beta in June 2016. Owing to no restriction on size limit, it automatically scales as per needs with a 50 MB per second data per TB of storage, customers can pay for up to 100MBps throughput. It starts at $0.30/GB/month.
  • In the meanwhile, Azure offers File Storage, that is more or less similar in nature with a capacity of 5TB per file and 500TB per account and it requires manual scaling. For reading files, it offers a 60MBps throughput.
  • Google does not have native file storage. It offers the FUSE adapter, which is a open source allowing users to mount files from Google Cloud Storage buckets to convert into a file system. With the highest throughput of the three providers with 180MBps on reads and 120MBps on writes, Google tops the list.
  • Google and Azure offer lower prices for their file storage systems. While Azure charges $0.80 per GB/month and Google charges $0.20. But these costs do not include any transfer charges or replication. Comparatively Amazon Web Service is expensive, when taking into account all factors in related to scaling; it could be a wash between the three providers.
