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.

  • 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.
