Download it: MP3 | AAC | OGG | OPUS

How do you choose the best storage option on AWS?

Choosing storage service is critical when designing a cloud architecture. Read on to learn about the characteristics, limitations, typical use cases, and a decision tree for the following options to store data on AWS:

  • Instance Store provides low latency and high throughput block storage for EC2 instances.
  • EBS (Elastic Block Storage) provides persistent block storage for EC2 instances.
  • EFS (Elastic File System) provides a scalable and fault-tolerant network file system (NFSv4).
  • FSx (File System for Windows File Server) provides a fully-managed Windows File Server.
  • S3 (Simple Storage Service) provides highly scalable and fault-tolerant object storage.

This podcast episode is based on the blog post Storage on AWS, which was published first on the Cloudcraft blog.

We are two brothers focusing 100% on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Every other week, one of us prepares the topic of the podcast. The topic is not known to the other one, which results in surprising conversations about all things AWS.

Typically, we are covering the following topics: DevOps, Serverless, Container, Security, Infrastructure as Code, Container, Continuous Deployment, S3, EC2, RDS, VPC, IAM, VPC, and many more.
