EksEmptyDir - Amazon Batch
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


Specifies the configuration of a Kubernetes emptyDir volume. An emptyDir volume is first created when a pod is assigned to a node. It exists as long as that pod is running on that node. The emptyDir volume is initially empty. All containers in the pod can read and write the files in the emptyDir volume. However, the emptyDir volume can be mounted at the same or different paths in each container. When a pod is removed from a node for any reason, the data in the emptyDir is deleted permanently. For more information, see emptyDir in the Kubernetes documentation.



The medium to store the volume. The default value is an empty string, which uses the storage of the node.

Use the tmpfs volume that's backed by the RAM of the node. Contents of the volume are lost when the node reboots, and any storage on the volume counts against the container's memory limit.
