Amazon Elastic Block Store

Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) provides raw block devices that can be attached to Amazon EC2 instances. These block devices can then be used like any raw block device. In a typical use case, this would include formatting the device with a filesystem and mounting said filesystem. In addition EBS supports a number of advanced storage features, including snapshotting and cloning. Currently EBS volumes can be up to 1TB in size.
