Overview

Amazon Web Services provides underlying block-storage devices, namely Elastic Block Storage (EBS), which can be organized into RAID configurations to increase performance and throughput, providing recovery protection from underlying physical disk failures.

SoftNAS Cloud® for AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is a virtual cloud storage appliance, providing trusted, commercial-grade NAS capabilities for EC2 cloud business computing workloads. EC2 workloads include web servers, SaaS applications, SQL database servers, Exchange servers, Windows Remote Desktop Servers, Citrix XenApp servers, etc. SoftNAS Cloud® for EC2 provides the flexible, full-featured storage capabilities for trusted cloud computing applications.

SoftNAS Cloud® for EC2 leverages flexible Elastic IP addresses, making it fast and easy to fail over across availability zones and regions (i.e., different data centers). It's also straightforward to quickly replicate a SoftNAS Cloud® instance from one availability zone to other geographic regions, so that data is always available and performs well for geographically local users and communities. 
Because SoftNAS Cloud® for EC2 uses Elastic Block Storage (EBS) and Amazon S3 object storage for raw data storage, backup and restore operations are fast and easy using EBS Volume Snapshots

The Amazon EC2 cloud computing environment, which will be referred to simply as EC2 in this guide, is a robust, powerful virtualization and computing system with many options and capabilities. For our purposes here, we will focus on installing SoftNAS Cloud® and configuring it for basic use. Additional options exist for increasing performance and throughput, for database and other, more demanding applications, which will be covered briefly.

SoftNAS Cloud® for EC2 leverages EBS (Elastic Block Storage) as its underlying block storage devices. Multiple EBS devices are then organized into RAID configurations, increasing performance and throughput, and providing the ability to recover from underlying physical disk failures that can occur with EBS. SoftNAS Cloud® provides the most durable, highest performance NAS solution available for Amazon EC2.
