In this course, we will learn about some of the Amazon Web Services or (AWS) Storage Solutions and compare them to the Amazon Elastic File System offering. Comparing the options gives us some context when trying to determine which solution is appropriate for a given situation, and help us understand how EFS fits into the ecosystem of Amazon Storage options. Next, we will dive into EFS and describe the Amazon Elastic File system. We will talk about the benefits of using Amazon EFS, and describe specific features of the service. Then, we will discuss some typical use cases for the Amazon Elastic File System. And finally, we will describe how to find Amazon EFS in the AWS console, and give a brief overview of how it is usually configured. Authored by Sarah Blatnik and narrated by Mark Thomas.
