Hi @Bloopa 

Please take a look at this info and see if this helps in understanding the requirements:

Getting Started with AWS EFS (Amazon Elastic File System)

Linux File System Agent: System Requirements

I haven’t been able to find any specific sizing guide for EC2 instance for protecting EFS Shares, but if you can provide some details on the data volumes involved, I can check internally with the teams here at Commvault.

If you can check internally it will be very helpful for me.

HI @Bloopa 


we use for a customer t3.xlarge what works very will. If you also push the MA packages as restore only you also can use Power management to save costs.  :smiley:
