Why does this matter?... … to app owners and developers? … to your business? • Easy to move existing code, applications, and tools used today with existing NFS servers to the AWS cloud • Simple shared file storage solution for new cloud-native applications • Predictable pricing with no up-front investment • Increased agility • Spend less time managing file storage and more time focusing on your business … to IT administrators? • Eliminates need to manage and maintain file system storage at scale
  14. 14. Diving In
  15. 15. Some key AWS concepts to understand • Region • Availability Zone (AZ) • Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)
  16. 16. Region • Geographic area where AWS services are available • Customers choose region(s) for their AWS resources • Eleven regions worldwide REGION
  17. 17. Availability Zone (AZ) • Each region has multiple, isolated locations known as Availability Zones • Low-latency links between AZs in a region • When launching an EC2 instance, a customer chooses an AZ AVAILABILITY ZONE 3 EC2 AVAILABILITY ZONE 2 AVAILABILITY ZONE 1 EC2 EC2 EC2 REGION
  18. 18. Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) • Logically isolated section of the AWS cloud, virtual network defined by the customer • When launching instances and other resources, customers place them in a VPC • All new customers have a default VPC AVAILABILITY ZONE 1 REGION AVAILABILITY ZONE 2 AVAILABILITY ZONE 3 VPC EC2 EC2 EC2 EC2
  19. 19. What is a file system? • The primary resource in EFS • Where you store files and directories • Can create unlimited file systems per account
  20. 20. How to access a file system from an instance • You “mount” a file system on an EC2 instance (standard command) — the file system will appear like a local set of directories and files • An NFS v4 client is standard on Linux distributions mount –t nfs4 [file system DNS name]:/ /[user’s target directory]
  21. 21. What is a mount target? • To access your file system from instances in a VPC, you create mount targets in the VPC • A mount target is an NFSv4 endpoint in your VPC • A mount target has an IP address and a DNS name you use in your mount command AVAILABILITY ZONE 1 REGION AVAILABILITY ZONE 2 AVAILABILITY ZONE 3 VPC EC2 EC2 EC2 EC2 Mount target
  22. 22. How does it all fit together? AVAILABILITY ZONE 1 REGION AVAILABILITY ZONE 2 AVAILABILITY ZONE 3 VPC EC2 EC2 EC2 EC2 Customer’s file system
  23. 23. There are three ways to set up and manage a file system • AWS Management Console • AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) • AWS Software Development Kit (SDK)
  24. 24. The AWS Management Console, CLI, and SDK each allow you to perform a variety of management tasks • Create a file system • Create and manage mount targets • Tag a file system • Delete a file system • View details on file systems in your AWS account
  25. 25. Setting up and mounting a file system takes under a minute 1. Create a file system 2. Create a mount target in each AZ from which you want to access the file system 3. Enable the NFS client on your instances 4. Run the mount command
  26. 26. Demo: Setting up a file system
  27. 27. Securing Your File System
  28. 28.
