Yes you need to use NFS for file sharing. so whenever there is new server will create it will use files from nfs server.

  • can you help with what all directory should be used for NFS , will NFS increase any latency or performance issue

You need to share some content between ec2 nodes Simple solution is shared volumes

You need to link var and pub/media directories to attached volume on each node

Better to support actual codebase on all nodes each deploy

I recommend to use Redis for cache and sessions. You can create Redis instance in AWS.

Don't forget to actualize for each node or share app/etc files

  • do you mean nFS storage as shared storage ?

  • In this case it's a solution called AWS Volume which you can manage in AWS console. Jun 3, 2022 at 13:22
  • we are using gcp can you tell what is it called in GCP

  • @VictorTihonchuk With use of either AWS Volume or Persistent Disk mean we are still at a possible 'single point of failure' problem for the application? When the SHARED ANYTHING is not available? Jun 28, 2022 at 13:09
