(experimental) EFS Performance mode.
(experimental) General Purpose is ideal for latency-sensitive use cases, like web serving environments, content management systems, home directories, and general file serving.
Recommended for the majority of Amazon EFS file systems.
(experimental) File systems in the Max I/O mode can scale to higher levels of aggregate throughput and operations per second.
This scaling is done with a tradeoff of slightly higher latencies for file metadata operations. Highly parallelized applications and workloads, such as big data analysis, media processing, and genomics analysis, can benefit from this mode.
