Learn how to articulate functionality advantages that Elastic File System has over EBS, and to state specific use cases to which EFS applies.
- [Voiceover] In order to address the limitations of EBS…and provide users with truly flexible storage,…AWS introduced Elastic File System.…EFS' first claim to fame is that it grows and shrinks…in size, not manually, on-demand like EBS,…but automatically, in response to your usage.…You don't even have to update the operating system,…because EFS always presents what looks like…mini-petabytes of storage.…EFS is not block storage like EBS.…Rather, it is a file system that can be…mounted by NFS 4.0 or 4.1 clients.…
Unfortunately, that does mean that Windows…cannot natively mount EFS. However, you can enable an NFS…service on certain versions of Windows,…that provide an NFS client, or use a third-party client.…In fact, EFS can be mounted by many clients at once,…making it well-suited for tasks that require…shared disk space, such as horizontally-scalable web apps,…or parallelizable data processing jobs.…This makes EFS a suitable NAS replacement,…if you're happy with its performance characteristics.…More on that, in a moment.…
