AWS Elastic File System

AWS EFS (Elastic File System) is a scalable, fully-managed file storage service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). It provides a simple, scalable, and highly available file system for use with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances and other resources.

With AWS EFS, you can create a file system and mount it to multiple EC2 instances, providing a shared file storage solution. This allows multiple EC2 instances to access the same data simultaneously, making it useful for applications that require shared access to files and data.

Intro to AWS EC2 Instance Store

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Instance Store is a type of local disk storage that is physically attached to an EC2 instance. It provides temporary block-level storage for instances that require high-speed, low-latency access to data, such as database or cache workloads.

EC2 Instance Store is ideal for use cases that require high-performance data access and fast data transfer rates, such as transaction processing, web applications, and Hadoop clusters. EC2 Instance Store can provide higher I/O performance compared to Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes, but it has some limitations.
