We are using Amazon Elastic Block storage to help us storage Amazon images as well as augment storage we are using in conjunction with our Elastic Cloud Compute machines. It's been great for us to utilize this to scale up and down our storage needs as the scenario is introduced. With a backup solution for our existing EC2 instances, we were able to cheaply manage and back up our fleet via scripting EBS information.
  • A cost-effective way to provide storage to virtual machines
  • Easy and efficient way to create back ups of images
  • Very quick storage request and provisioning
  • Cost can be confusing to determine
  • The initial learning curve can be confusing unless you know what's going on with AWS
  • You can lose track of EBS if you aren't organized
Amazon Elastic Block storage is a great tool to augment your existing Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud and allows you a good way to add, move and adjust storage. It is great also for a back up solution for your virtual resources that are in the cloud to be used in cases of disaster recovery.
The support for Amazon Elastic Block Store is great as long as you can articulate your needs. Like most tools, there may be some back and forth before you find a support person that is knowledgable in the tool and can provide you with necessary insights.
