Storage classes and performance for AWS clusters

Contributors

Astra Control Service can use Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) or Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP as the storage backends for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) clusters.

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)

When you use EBS as the storage backend for EKS clusters, you can configure some storage class parameters. For more information about what the parameters mean and how to configure them, see the Kubernetes documentation.

You can use several different types of volumes with EBS:

  • Solid state drives (SSD)

  • Hard disk drives (HDD)

  • Previous generation

For more information on each type of volume and their performance, see the Amazon EBS documentation. For pricing information, see Amazon EBS pricing.

Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP

When you use FSx for NetApp ONTAP as the storage backend for AWS clusters, I/O performance depends on the configuration of the filesystem and the characteristics of your workloads. For specific information on FSx for NetApp ONTAP performance, see Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP performance. For pricing information, see Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP Pricing.
