Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS), which provides simple and scalable file storage for use with Amazon EC2 instances in the AWS Cloud, now allows you to access your file data from on-premises datacenters. On-premises servers can now move file data to and from your Amazon EFS file systems when connected to your Amazon VPC with AWS Direct Connect, allowing you to migrate data sets to EFS, enable cloud bursting scenarios, or backup your on-premises data to EFS.
