Elastic File Share

  • This is network file share which can be mounted on linux instances
  • EFS Can be created in any region and it indirectly creates the storage in subnets/AZ’s.
  • Since this is disk storage that is mounted using network, we need to configure security group as well
  • EFS works only on linux and mac instances, To support windows, netapp, open zfs and lustre AWS uses a service called as FsX


  • Create two ec2 instances with amazon linux ami
