Amazon Elastic Container Service now supports Amazon EFS file systems

It has only been five years since Jeff wrote on this blog about the launch of the Amazon Elastic Container Service. I remember reading that post and thinking how exotic and unusual containers sounded. Fast forward just five years, and containers are an everyday part of most developers lives, but whilst customers are increasingly adopting container orchestrators such as ECS, there are still some types of applications that have been hard to move into this containerized world.
Customers building applications that require data persistence or shared storage have faced a challenge since containers are temporary in nature. As containers are scaled in and out dynamically, any local data is lost as containers are terminated. Today we are changing that for ECS by launching support for Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) file systems. Both containers running on ECS and AWS Fargate will be able to use Amazon Elastic File System (EFS).

New for Amazon EFS – IAM Authorization and Access Points

When building or migrating applications, we often need to share data across multiple compute nodes. Many applications use file APIs and Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) makes it easy to use those applications on AWS, providing a scalable, fully managed Network File System (NFS) that you can access from other AWS services and on-premises resources.
EFS scales on demand from zero to petabytes with no disruptions, growing and shrinking automatically as you add and remove files, eliminating the need to provision and manage capacity. By using it, you get strong file system consistency across 3 Availability Zones. EFS performance scales with the amount of data stored, with the option to provision the throughput you need.
Last year, the EFS team focused on optimizing costs with the introduction of the EFS Infrequent Access (IA) storage class, with storage prices up to 92% lower compared to EFS Standard. You can quickly start reducing your costs by

New – Provisioned Throughput for Amazon Elastic File System (EFS)

Amazon Elastic File System lets you create petabyte-scale file systems that can be accessed in massively parallel fashion from hundreds or thousands of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) servers and on-premises resources, scaling on demand without disrupting applications. Behind the scenes, storage is distributed across multiple Availability Zones and redundant storage servers in order to provide you with file systems that are scalable, durable, and highly available. Space is allocated and billed on as as-needed basis, allowing you to consume as much as you need while keeping costs proportional to actual usage. Applications can achieve high levels of aggregate throughput and IOPS, with consistent low latencies. Our customers are using EFS for a broad spectrum of use cases including media processing workflows, big data & analytics jobs, code repositories, build trees, and content management repositories, taking advantage of the ability to simply lift-and-shift their existing file-based applications and workflows to

New – Encryption of Data in Transit for Amazon EFS

Amazon Elastic File System was designed to be the file system of choice for cloud-native applications that require shared access to file-based storage. We launched EFS in mid-2016 and have added several important features since then including on-premises access via Direct Connect and encryption of data at rest. We have also made EFS available in additional AWS Regions, most recently US West (Northern California). As was the case with EFS itself, these enhancements were made in response to customer feedback, and reflect our desire to serve an ever-widening customer base.
Encryption in Transit Today we are making EFS even more useful with the addition of support for encryption of data in transit. When used in conjunction with the existing support for encryption of data at rest, you now have the ability to protect your stored files using a defense-in-depth security strategy.
In order to make it easy for you to
