S3 write performance with yas3fs – 100fps

While S3 is no match for EBS SSD’s it is quite surprising what kind of performance you can get out of it when used as a standard filesystem.

Using yas3fs https://github.com/danilop/yas3fs to join together some video files I am getting a solid 100fps with a 10-15Mbps source file which is quite usable for general encoding workloads.

Note that it is important to make sure you EC2 machine and S3 bucket are in the same region.
