Amazon finally loads NAS service into AWS.
I am not surprised by such news: my previous post roughly outlined an architecture of a private offering. Amazon must implement NAS in a different way: under the hood, they don’t need to have S3 or EBS as storage media. In fact, this EFS is much like OpenStack Manila.
Now, the question is what is going to happen to NetApp and other smaller Cloud-based NAS vendors, who charges double fees: AWS usage + NAS usage.
