Best Practices

Amazon S3 - Performance

The performance of S3 reads is better when multiple mount paths are created instead of one single mount path.

Therefore, depending on the estimated Front-End Terabyte (FET) capacity in your environment, create a mount path for every 25 terabyte (TB) of data.

For example if the estimation is 100 TB, then create 4 mount paths.

Note that the same bucket can be used to create the second and subsequent mount paths. A unique base folder will be created for each mount path under the bucket.

In addition, make sure that the Spill and Fill Mount Paths option is enabled in the Library Properties. This setting will help to distribute the objects across different partitions in the bucket, making the retrieval of the objects faster. For more information on this option, see Parameters for Mount Path Usage.
