Introduction:

Amazon FSx is the File Server Service that is integrated with AWS. If we use this then there is no more need to manage the Hardware and Software to provide file server services to the end-users. Setting up of the Hardware, and Servers is taken care of by the AWS. Hence, we don’t need to set it up on our own in case of any hardware failure.

AWS also patches and maintains the server on its own which takes care of the software.
