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.

IBM Cloud Internet Services

IBM Cloud Internet Services is the best solution to provide security for your applications if you plan to integrate your applications with IBM Watson Services such as the Natural Language Classifier, Text-to-Speech, Speech-to-Text, Watson Assistant etc. These services are very easy to integrate and manage through IBM Cloud, and in turn, have out-of-the-box configurations for security provided by IBM Cloud Internet Services. It is not the best security solution to use if your applications are running on other cloud infrastructure providers' platforms

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.

IBM Cloud Internet Services

IBM Cloud Internet Services edged out Cisco solutions in terms of quality of user experience and need to have flexibility in parameterizing the solution in global organization. Amazon cloud solutions are comparable to IBM solutions.
