Redesign of the File Storage service page

  • Services: File Storage
  • Release Date: Jan. 29, 2019
  • API Versions Affected: 20171215

The File Storage service page has been redesigned to improve the file system creation and management experience. Changes include:

  • Improved navigation and workflows.
  • Mount targets are now managed independently of file systems, eliminating invisible ("orphan") mount targets.
  • Create file systems in one step by accepting system-provided defaults.
  • You can now use the console to create and manage exports for file systems.
  • NFS export options can now be set for each export using the console, making it easier to govern access to your file system.
  • Information about your file system and mount target is more easily viewed and updated.
