Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) is a type of storage designed specifically for Amazon EC2 instances. Amazon EBS lets you create volumes that Amazon EC2 instances can mount as devices much like a standard hard drive.

Amazon EBS volumes behave like raw, unformatted, external block devices. They have user-supplied device names and provide a block device interface. You can load a file system on top of Amazon EBS volumes, or use them just as you would use a block device.
