AWS Configurations

Using Amazon EFS

To use Amazon EFS, install some utilities and mount the EFS in setup_commands. Note that these instructions only work if you are using the AWS Autoscaler.


You need to replace the {{FileSystemId}} to your own EFS ID before using the config. You may also need to set correct SecurityGroupIds for the instances in the config file.
