The cloud-based file storage service Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) runs in the AWS public cloud for all the applications and workloads. EFS is a simple, scalable file storage. It has a simple interface that creates and configures file systems fast and easy. The storage capacity is elastic, increasing and decreasing automatically depending upon the volume of data. The flexible billing model helps to pay only for the storage in use.
AWS spontaneously deploys and manages the infrastructure for EFS, which is distributed across an unlimited number of servers to avoid performance blockages. Amazon EFS offers flexible storage capacity that scales to put up workloads running on Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances.
Amazon EFS is intended to be extremely available and durable for numerous EC2 instances that are connected to the service.
Amazon EFS file system provides a standard file system interface and file system access semantics to seamlessly integrate Amazon EFS with the existing applications and tools for all the Amazon EC2 instances. Lots of Amazon EC2 instances will be able to access an Amazon EFS file system instantaneously, letting the Amazon EFS be available with a shared data source for workloads and applications running on one or multiple Amazon EC2 instances.
Amazon EFS file systems can be mounted on on-premises datacenter servers when connected to Amazon VPC with AWS Direct Connect. To migrate data sets to EFS, enable cloud bursting scenarios, or backup your on-premises data to EFS, the EFS file systems need to be mounted on on-premises servers.
Multiple AWS EC2 Instances can access an EFS share simultaneously.
