Tags are metadata you can add to a volume. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value. Â Add tags to your volume to simplify the administration of your EC2 infrastructure. A form of metadata, tags consist of a case-sensitive key/value pair, are stored in the cloud and are private to your account. You can create user-friendly names that help you organize, search, and browse your resources. For example, you could define a tag with key = Name and value = CRMwebroot. You can add up to 10 unique keys to each volume along with an optional value for each key.
