Cloud File Storage

A secure, scalable and low-cost file sharing solution that can be seamlessly integrated into your business

Overview

Cloud File Storage (CFS) is a secure and scalable file sharing and storage solution. It can be used in conjunction with Tencent Cloud's servers, container service, and batch computing service. CFS provides multiple computing nodes with high-performance shared storage with scalable capacity and performance.

Benefits

Integrated Management

CFS is compatible with POSIX and supports cross-platform access, ensuring the consistency of files and data. Your cloud virtual machine (CVM) instance can access the CFS system using the standard NFS protocol.

Simple to Use

CFS provides a simple, easy-to-learn console interface. Quickly create, configure and manage the file system, and reduce the amount of time you spend deploying and maintaining your own Network Attached storage (NAS).

Shared Access

Multiple CVMs or container services can share the same CFS system. Computing nodes in different regions can also use the same CFS through a VPC, allowing multiple nodes to coordinate tasks and share files.

Flexible and Scalable

CFS storage capacity scales flexibly without impacting applications or services. At the same time, performance increases in line with storage to provide reliable, high-performance services.

Pay Per Use

CFS assigns capacity dynamically and prepayment is not required. Billing is based on actual usage. Because CFS can be accessed by multiple clients, there is no need to purchase other storage solutions.

Secure and Reliable

CFS standard file storage runs with three layers of redundancy giving extremely high availability and reliability. CFS can restrict client permissions using user isolation, network isolation and access whitelists.

Features

Tencent Cloud File Storage (CFS) offers comprehensive file storage features including standard access protocols, permission controls and integrated management.
Standard Access Protocols

CFS adheres to POSIX file access protocols and supports NFSv3 and NFSv4, allowing the use of standard commands to mount file systems.

Scenarios

Corporate File Sharing Implementation

In companies with a large number of employees, people need to share and have access to the same datasets. Administrators can use CFS to create a file system and allow the access of individuals in organizations. And administrators can also set file or directory-based permissions for users or user groups.

Streaming Media Implementation

Shared file storage is often relied upon to handle the large files required by multimedia tasks such as video editing, AV production, broadcast processing, sound design and rendering. CFS’s powerful data consistency model coupled with high throughput and shared data access can reduce the time needed to process multimedia files.

Web Services and Content Management Implementation

CFS is a highly compatible and durable file system. It can be used for a range of content management systems and to provide data source files for applications or services such as websites, online publishing, and resource archiving.

Big Data Analysis Implementation

CFS provides the scale and performance required for big data applications. With high-throughput computing nodes, read-after-write consistency and low latency, CFS is particularly suitable for carrying out data analysis and logset processing coupled with data analysis services and container services.

Pricing

Tencent Cloud CFSs are billed in a postpaid manner. In this flexible billing mode, you can only pay for what you use. Billing and settlement is performed hourly, and you don't need to pay for anything in advance.
