A data volume that's used in a job's container properties.



This parameter is specified when you're using an Amazon Elastic File System file system for job storage. Jobs that are running on Fargate resources must specify a platformVersion of at least 1.4.0.

Type: EFSVolumeConfiguration object

The contents of the host parameter determine whether your data volume persists on the host container instance and where it's stored. If the host parameter is empty, then the Docker daemon assigns a host path for your data volume. However, the data isn't guaranteed to persist after the containers that are associated with it stop running.


This parameter isn't applicable to jobs that are running on Fargate resources and shouldn't be provided.
