Aws Backup now supports EFS

Hello please update the challenge since now EFS supports backups.

G Vossen

Challenge 2 is the questions regarding the usage of the File-Gateway. He is discarding answer E because the says "the File-Gateway does not expose via iSCSI" as far as I can see that is wrong. The file-gateway certainly exposes itself via iSCSI and does not support efs

G Vossen

so I think E is the correct answer. What am I missing?

Scott Pletcher

File Gateway can be mounted as NFS or SMB, but not via iSCSI. You can read about the differences here:

G Vossen, there are 3 type of storage available in Storage Gateway which is file, volume and tape. iSCSI only avaible for volume storage.

Rafael Franco

I believe the Backup support on NFS has nothing to do with the challenge question, regarding the filegateway it is true that it cannot be mounted as iSCSI, that would be a Volume Gateway.

Rafael Franco

I guess it is a matter of what options are shwon in the answers, if Volume gateway was mention we could argue that is a better option regarding performance

Hi Catalin,

I’m confused as to why you believe the question must be updated because AWS Backup now support EFS.  Could you please elaborate on your reasoning?
