Easy and fastest solution to deploy Samba server

This is by far the easiest solution to create and run a Samba server. All you have to do is create EBS volume and then add them in User Data. Those volumes will be available to your users as a share :)

The implementation is also very easy, they have easy to follow documentation available that explains how to set up the server.

It is also highly scalable, resilient, and secure since Administration access i.e SSH is disabled by default.

Highly recommend to anyone who doesn't want to go through the manual process of setting up their own Samba server and waste time learning complicated configurations.


Easy to install file sharing solution for AWS Linux instances

I managed to install this cheap Samba server in less then half an hour and could share files between multiple Linux EC2 instances, and all that without even configuring the server. Really easy to use and works like a charm. And all that in a very secure manner.

This samba server was so easy to set up. The fact that it automatically serves EBS drives using guest access out of the box would mean we don't need to even SSH to it to configure it. This is a great plug and play solution for those who want to share EBS drives within their corporate network. I also liked the fact that is secure by not allowing root access and is automatically restricted to client systems on the LAN.
