Question

Anything similar to AWS EFS (NFS) in DO?

With AWS EFS we can mount a volume with multiple compute instances to share files.

How do we achieve that in digitalocean? Does digitalocean has any managed Network File System (NFS)?

Hey @sisirkantiadhikari,

A managed NFS service is not available as of the time being, there are a few things that I could suggest:

  • You can setup an NFS server on a Droplet by following the steps here:

  • Alternatively, if you are going to use this for static files manually, you could use an S3 storage like Spaces:

Regarding the managed NFS service, the best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented:

Feel free to share the link to the idea so I could upvote it as well!

Hope that helps!
