Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) File Storage is a fully managed elastic file system built for the cloud that enables customers to migrate their enterprise workloads to the cloud. Every file system scales automatically to accommodate the growth of up to 8 exabytes. File Storage eliminates the need to provision capacity in advance, so customers pay only for the capacity they need. File Storage also offers snapshot and clone capabilities to simplify business continuity for enterprise applications.
Oracle’s modern take on storage makes the cloud more flexible and affordable than ever.
OCI File Storage is an enterprise-grade fully managed service and easily accommodates growing application storage needs. File Storage handles capacity management, software upgrades, security and disk failure, freeing IT managers to focus on business and application needs. OCI File Storage is NFSv3-compliant and can be accessed through VCN peering, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect, or virtual private network (VPN). File Storage ensures business continuity with snapshot and clone capabilities and offers comprehensive features for lift and shift of enterprise applications.
OCI File Storage employs 5-way replicated storage, located in different fault domains, to provide redundancy for resilient data protection. Customer data is replicated for durability within each availability domain in a highly available infrastructure that implements industry-leading data protection techniques and best practices and is backed by SLA.
OCI File Storage encrypts all stored file system and snapshot data at rest by default, using the AES 256 encryption algorithm. By default, all file systems are encrypted using Oracle-managed encryption keys. Customers have the option to encrypt file systems using keys that they own and manage using Oracle Vault. Additionally, OCI File Storage provides the option for configuring encryption in transit for all data and metadata.
OCI File Storage is Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX)-compliant to maximize application compatibility between different operating systems. Easily attach OCI File Storage to any existing network that supports network file system version 3.0 (NFSv3) to enable use cases including big data analytics, digital asset management, compliance management, backup, and more.
File Storage reduces the administrative workload of compliance management with third-party audits and certifications available for both regions and specific countries. The Compliance Documents Service lets users view and download compliance documents as needed, on a self-service basis so that support requests are avoided.
Customers save 40% or more in some geographies relative to competitors. For example, Amazon EFS standard storage in Sao Paolo Brazil is priced at 47% more per GB ($0.57 per GB/mo.) than OCI File Storage ($0.30 per GB/mo.).

File Storage ensures consistent file systems for concurrent read and write operations by multiple clients.
File Storage provides higher availability and durability for customers who need a fully managed service to handle a single point of failure.
File Storage performs best with parallelized workloads and when running bulk operations.
File Storage is best suited for applications that require scale-out access and capacity.
In our continuous progress toward enabling enterprise applications on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), we’re excited to announce cloning capability for File Storage. With this feature, you can turn any snapshot into an independent live file system instantaneously and access it for read and write immediately.Read the complete post
