Re: Creating multiple clusters from the same template

Have you considered using AWS Elastic File System? It would let you mount
your volume from multiple instances. It's
$0.30/GB-month, which is a lot more than EBS, but it's actually elastic and
multi-mountable. It's only available in a few regions.

Is there Starcluster work required to support EFS? I may be able to take a
crack at it.
