Do you need to store data in your AWS cloud that can be accessed by multiple AWS virtual machines or instances? If so, you need something like a storage area network (SAN) in the cloud. The Elastic File System (EFS) provides this service and this video introduces the EFS service and features.
- The next storage system that we want to talk about … in this course is EFS, the Elastic File System. … Now this one is unique among all the different file systems. … So S3, they're very big constraints about how you use it. … And then there's EBS, … has to be connected to one instance in one instance only. … You can't share it among multiple instances. … EFS is different because EFS is shareable. … That's the first thing to keep in mind … with this particular solution. … And what that means then is, … we can actually have multiple instances accessing it … at the same time because of its shareable nature. … So what we can do … is have this kind of like a share on the network … that we thought of in the old days, … that multiple devices can access that share. … This is the same concept. … It's also hierarchical in nature. … And what that means … is that there is a hierarchical structure … in the file system. … So unlike S3 buckets … that you have to use prefixes and delimiters, … in this case, we actually have a folder hierarchy. …
