Scalability and Elasticity - AWS Storage Services Overview

Scalability and Elasticity

Amazon EFS automatically scales your file system storage capacity up or down as you add or remove files without disrupting your applications, giving you just the storage you need, when you need it, and while eliminating time-consuming administration tasks associated with traditional storage management (such as planning, buying, provisioning, and monitoring). Your EFS file system can grow from an empty file system to multiple petabytes automatically, and there is no provisioning, allocating, or administration.
