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.

Clarify before hand any additional charges for remote hand and arrangement/SLA for remote hand. Negotiate well on these terms as they tend to be more flexible around this. Clarify shipping and handling charges if any.

Price and facility equipment, location of the hosting facility factor into the decision to renew

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.
