I have a large file(~3GB) that my demo application is using for analysis. I'm running the application in containers running on a ecs cluster(fargate). Any recommendations on what would be the best way to store that file so that it can be referenced by application?

store it in an S3 bucket and then reference it from there? or store it on EFS and mount an EFS volume

s3 bucket seems simple enough, thanks @billowy-army-68599 I haven't tried EFS before. Do you have an idea of the advantages over a bucket?

EFS will give you a filesystem where s3 will require you to instrument object storage. If you’re already using the local filesystem, EFS will be easier on your app, but harder to configure infra wise
