Kong + ECS + EFS

Hey there folks!

I’m interested in trying to build out some failover security for Data Plane instances in an ECS cluster, and I wanted to know whether or not there might be any guidance around the usage of EFS to achieve this?

My thoughts on this right now are to use a single EFS access point with a different kong_prefix for each DP node in the cluster, so that Kong processes aren’t fighting one another. But in this configuration, how can we ensure that brand-new containers being spun up to replace killed containers are able to re-mount to the correct mount point on EFS?

Are there are tips or tricks for this kind of configuration, or am I just over-thinking things and it’s fine to just mount to the same EFS access point AND kong_prefix?
