AWS announced Amazon EFS, a scalable network file system, at re:Invent 2014 almost two years ago. Finally, EFS is now generally available and production ready in US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland).

Are you interested in giving EFS a try? This article shows you how to setup your first EFS environment within 60 seconds.

  1. Launch Stack
  2. Click Next to proceed with the next step of the wizard.
  3. Specify the parameters for the stack.
  4. Click Next to proceed with the next step of the wizard.
  5. Click Next to skip the Options step of the wizard.
  6. Click Create to start the creation of the stack.
  7. Wait until the stack reaches the state CREATE_COMPLETE.

Afterward, you can connect to the EC2 instance, named the same as the CloudFormation stack, via SSH. EFS is mounted under /efs.

Happy testing!
