Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Elastic File System (EFS)

Amazon EFS provide you scalable elastic file system with ease of integration of your past setup.My company already using multiple Amazon services AWS cloud so Amazon EFS is very helpful.
I am from analytics team but I have used this in project with out Tech engineering team.
We need large file system where rdbms and other resource is not helpful and we start using elastic file system.
It is started from project level and now it used completed department not company level but our department which consist of engineering team, analytics team and category product managers. System are now using Amazon EFS
  • Easy Integration
  • No problem like in RDBMS
  • Cloud script to maintain EFS dynamically
  • For early age start it would be costly
  • Not necessary for small scale system, but very beneficial for system which have high TPS and huge user base
  • Positive: Highly scalable solution, more than 6 month for bug fixing exist only product improvement is there
  • Positive : Dynamic file maintenance to make sure no session time out issue
  • Negative: Nothing as such
If your Team/Company already using AWS and you are building a scalable solution which require API building which connect to a database consist numerous file, then Amazon EFS is definitely must go to tool. which enable the productivity with less maintenance highly compatibility with old system . easy integration and api development.
