Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)

Since our organization is using Amazon cloud service for storing data or to attach additional storage we use EBS(elastic block store) since they are raw and quite ideal for flat-file systems, database mounting any kind of drive also. Due to their elasticity nature, they can be attached to multiple EC2 instances and data will always be persistent.


  • Data will be persistent irrespective your EC2 instance goes down
  • They are quite fast in terms of read and write
  • Memory management in terms of EBS is better than the OBS


  • Creating too much EBS can be disaster if you are not properly organized by tags
  • In terms of pricing it's a bit on higher side.
  • In terms of performance, there is room for improvement as sometimes reading or saving the data can be painful.
  • Elastic block storage deployment in different AZ ( availability zone)
  • It can be easily detach and attach to the EC2 instance
  • In terms of stability , availability, durability is quite good
  • In terms of ROI, I found it's really cost-effective since maintenance cost is not there. No need to spend extra money on the procurement of hard drives
  • On demand feature of Ebs is quite effective when you require extra storage you can allocate and pay as per your need.
  • Accessibility from everywhere and deployment of it across different geographical location.
The reason I selected Amazon Elastic block store is because of their fast and quick response, a wide variety of services that can be easily available on a single platform. Easy integration with different platforms through APIs, security, pay as you go, service on demand, and it's quite cost-effective in terms of other cloud platforms out in the market right now.

EBS proved quite beneficial in terms of keeping the data persistent especially in cases where you have capping in terms of storage on EC2 instance, one EBS can be connected to multiple EC2 instances which can act as an external hard drive important data can be pushed into it. These EBS blocks can be deployed into different availability zone so that in case one of the availability zones goes down others will be available to cater to the request.
