Using Posit Connect with Amazon EFS (Elastic File System)#

RStudio is now Posit!

Our professional products have been renamed to Posit Connect, Posit Workbench, Posit Package Manager, Posit Cloud, and Posit Academy so it’s easier for folks to understand that we support more than just R. Please review our Blog post/FAQ to answer commonly asked questions about the rebrand.

To use Posit Connect, formerly RStudio Connect, in any multi-node configuration, you must mount certain files on a shared file system.

It is possible to use Amazon EFS as this file system, subject to the following limitations:

  • You may experience performance issues when compared to a file system mounted on Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS).
  • If you choose to configure Database.Dir, this also must point to the same shared location.
  • Incorrect configurations can make performance significantly worse, so please read over our Posit Team, formerly RStudio Team, guide below.

For more information, as well as configuration guidance, refer to Posit Team integration with EFS.
