Amazon FSx for Lustre now supports project quotas



[Amazon FSx for Lustre](, a fully managed service that makes it easy and cost effective to launch, run, and scale the world’s most popular high-performance file system, now supports project quotas. With project quotas, you can group multiple files or directories on your file system into a project, and monitor storage consumption on a per-project basis. Project quotas are ideal for storage administrators who manage file systems that serve multiple projects or teams who want to ensure that no project exceeds its allocated storage capacity. Until today, you could set and enforce user- and group-level storage consumption using user quotas and group quotas. With project quotas, you can also set and enforce storage limits based on the number of files or storage capacity consumed by a specific project. You can set a hard limit to prevent projects from consuming additional storage after exceeding their project quota, or set a soft limit that provides users with a grace period to complete their workloads before converting into a hard limit. Support for project quotas is now available at no additional cost on all Amazon FSx for Lustre file systems running on Lustre version 2.15\.
