EBS vs. EFS vs. S3: When to Use AWS's Three Storage Solutions

AWS offers a range of storage solutions, but for many users with typical storage needs, the decision comes down to these three services: EBS, EFS, or S3.

The question is, which one?

It all depends on your use case, but the good news is that these three services are generally different enough from each other that, once you’ve established your needs, and you understand what situations each one is most suited to, picking one over the others is easy.

1. EBS: High Performance, per Instance Block Storage

2. EFS: Scalable File Storage for Multiple EC2 Instances

3. S3: Object Storage for Complex Queries and Archived Data
