AWS Batch JobDefinition Volumes

The Volumes property type specifies data volumes for containers to use in a job definition.


To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:


{ "Host" : VolumesHost, "Name" : String }


Host: VolumesHost Name: String



The contents of the Host parameter determine whether your data volume persists on the host container instance and where it is stored. If the host parameter is empty, then the Docker daemon assigns a host path for your data volume, but the data is not guaranteed to persist after the containers associated with it stop running.
