Confused by AWS Storage Options? S3, EBS, EFS Explained

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is well-known for its vast number of product offerings. There are (probably) a few AWS ninjas who know exactly how and when to use which Amazon product for what. The rest of us are in need of help.

Specifically in the storage arena, AWS provides three popular services — S3, Elastic Block Store (EBS), and Elastic File System (EFS) — which work quite differently and offer different levels of performance, cost, availability, and scalability. We’ll discuss the use cases of these storage options, and compare their performance, cost, and accessibility to stored data.

AWS Storage Options: A Primer

  • **Amazon S3 **provides simple object storage, useful for hosting website images and videos, data analytics, and both mobile and web applications. Object storage manages data as objects, meaning all data types are stored in their native formats. There is no hierarchy of relations between files with object storage — data objects can be distributed across several machines. You can access the S3 service from anywhere on the internet. Learn more about Amazon S3 common operations on objects and buckets.

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
