EBS: A Regular Drive

Learn about the details of Amazon's block storage, EBS.

Elastic Block Store, or EBS, is AWS’s implementation of block storage as part of Amazon EC2.

EBS is a network block storage, meaning that we are not directly accessing the underlying hardware, but a virtual block volume provided over the network. Apart from that, it behaves exactly as a physical volume like the hard drives or solid-state disks in our computers.
