Amazon Elastic File System (EFS)

It works well as run-of-the-mill NFS that is managed as a service rather than a server. It works anywhere NFS is usable.
Chris Saenz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Hostway (Ntirety)

Well suited when your product is used by millions of customers and less appropriate where the application is based on performance or execution speed

The documentation is sufficient for setting up and it is basic NFS for mounting so not much support is required. I have not had any issues to warrant a request with AWS support.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Elastic File System (EFS)

EFS is essentially an NFS export offering, just simplified and accessible through all the automation and scalability that AWS offers. It provides high-available replicated data in multiple AZs with is akin to something like DRBD, but without having to manage the layer of software that does replication and keeps track of roles.
