Starting today, you can access Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) file systems from your Amazon EC2 Mac instances running macOS Big Sur. You can now mount your Amazon EFS file systems on your instances by using the Amazon EFS client, an open source toolset, installed using the Homebrew package manager. You can also mount your Amazon EFS file systems on your instances using the macOS native NFS client version 4.0. To learn more about mounting Amazon EFS file systems on EC2 Mac instances, see the Amazon EFS documentation.
Amazon EFS provides a simple, serverless, set-and-forget elastic file system for use with AWS compute services. You can use Amazon EFS with your Amazon EC2 Mac instances to build, test, and publish your applications faster by sharing code repositories. Access to Amazon EFS file systems from EC2 Mac instances running macOS Big Sur instances is available in all AWS Regions where EC2 Mac instances are available.
