Amazon FSx can launch and run popular file systems that are fully managed by AWS. You have 2 options; one for Windows and another for Linux.Continue reading “[AWS Architect] Amazon FSx”
AWS PrivateLink connects your AWS services with other AWS services through a private tunnel.
- PrivateLink secures data shared with cloud-based applications by eliminating the exposure of data to the public Internet.
- PrivateLink allows access to AWS Services in a highly available way while keeping all the network traffic within the AWS network.
Elastic File System (EFS) is a scalable managed service that implements the Network File System (NFSv4).
- File systems can be mounted on multiple Linux instances at the same time. -> shared media, home folder, shared documents.
- It can be accessed in the VPC, across the VPC, and even from outside of VPC through Direct Connect.
- EFS is built to scale while maintaining low latency and high throughput. It can support thousands of current NFS connections.
- EFS is a regional service that stores data across multiple AZs for high availability and durability.
- EFS supports Read after Write consistency.
Elastic Block Store (EBS) is a network-attached storage service that creates and manages persistent volumes.
- Volumes are persistent (removed and attached) and are replicated within a single AZ.
- You can change the EBS volume size and the storage type on the fly.
- EBS supports a maximum per-instance throughput of 1,750 MiB/s.
- EBS supports 80,000 IOPS per instance or 64,000 IOPS per volume.
- By default, EBS volumes are replicated within the AZ.
- Every EC2 instance must have a root volume, which may or may not be EBS (Elastic Block Store).
- By default, an EBS root volume will be deleted when the instance is terminated. You can change the setting to make EBS volumes persistent.
- You can attach additional EBS volumes to instances, and they are not deleted when the instance is terminated.
An Instance Type determines a particular set of features and sizes (hardware components) that decide the level of workload – Compute Power (vCPU), Memory, Storage Options, Network Performance.Continue reading “[AWS] EC2 – Instance Types”
AWS provides various purchasing options for users to optimize their costs based on their needs. On-demand is the base option. You can pay just for what you use. But you can get a discount by reserving instances for a set of periods.Continue reading “[AWS] EC2 Purchasing Options”
Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) provides scalable computing capacity in the AWS Cloud, which you can use to launch virtual servers, configure security and networking, and manage storage.Continue reading “[AWS] EC2 Basics”
