Expedite your migration to cloud
Filestore enables application migration to cloud without requiring you to rewrite or rearchitect, accelerating and simplifying your migration.
Simple to manage
Deploy Filestore instances easily, from the console, gCloud CLI, or using APIs. Spend less time configuring and monitoring your file storage, and more time focused on driving value for your business.
Scale capacity up or down as you need
Pay for what you use, not what you don't. Automatically scale capacity up and down based on the demand of your applications.
"Our team is looking forward to working with our customers to leverage Filestore Enterprise for their GKE workloads. The 99.99% regional availability is extremely valuable to our customers looking to run mission critical applications in Google Cloud."

Filestore offers multiple instance tiers to meet different storage and performance needs.
Many on-premises applications require a file system interface. We've made it easy to migrate your enterprise applications to the cloud with our fully managed storage service. Filestore Enterprise is built for critical applications requiring regional availability and having unstructured NFS data requirements.
Quantitative researchers and modelers require ready access to powerful compute and storage resources to deliver useful, time-to-value trading insights. Filestore High Scale is built for high performance computing (HPC) applications to access, sort, process, model, and deliver the right information to the right decision-maker at the right time.
You can easily mount Filestore file shares on Compute Engine instances, enabling visual effects artists to collaborate on the same file share. As rendering workflows typically run across fleets (“render farms”) of compute machines, all of which mount a shared filesystem, Filestore and Compute Engine can scale to meet your job’s rendering needs.
Compute complex financial models or analyze environmental data with Filestore. As capacity or performance needs change, easily grow or shrink your instances as needed. As a persistent and shareable storage layer, Filestore enables immediate access to data for high-performance, smart analytics without the need to lose valuable time on loading and off-loading data to clients’ drives.
Genome sequencing requires an incredible amount of raw data, on the order of billions of data points per person. This type of analysis requires speed, scalability, and security. Filestore meets the needs of companies and research institutions performing scientific research, while also offering predictable prices for the performance.
Web developers and large hosting providers rely on Filestore to manage and serve web content, including needs such as WordPress hosting.
