An international humanitarian aid organization has a requirement to store 20 TB worth of scanned files for their relief operations which can grow to up to a total of 50 TB of data. There is also a requirement to have a search feature in place that can be used to easily find a certain item through the thousands of scanned files. The new system is expected to run for more than 3 years.
Which of the following is the most cost-effective option in implementing the search feature in their system?
The correct answer is:
Set up a new S3 bucket with standard storage to store and serve the scanned files. Use CloudSearch for query processing and use Elastic Beanstalk to host the website across multiple availability zones.
I understand why this is the correct answer. However, according to this article it is essential to put something in place to populate the Index:
With this in mind, perhaps a slight adjustment to this response would make it clearer:
Set up a new S3 bucket with standard storage to store and serve the scanned files. Use CloudSearch for query processing, use S3 events and Lambda to populate the CloudSEarch index, and use Elastic Beanstalk to host the website across multiple availability zones.
I’m saying this because I selected the other answer about EFS because I figured a third party search solution would be able to crawl attached storage which would not be possible with the combination of S3 and Cloudsearch unless there was some mechanism in play to actually index the content.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this item.
Take note that there are questions in the actual AWS exam that are difficult, tricky, and ambiguous. You have to be prepared to look for specific keywords or key phrases in order to find the most suitable answer. This is the style that we are trying to mimic in our practice tests. Some of the questions do not explicitly show the obvious keywords or phrases that will easily point to the answer.
