Amazon S3

Easy to use, high performance block storage at any scale

Get started with Amazon EMR

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) is an easy to use, high performance block storage service designed for use with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) for both throughput and transaction intensive workloads at any scale. A broad range of workloads, such as relational and non-relational databases, enterprise applications, containerized applications, big data analytics engines, file systems, and media workflows are widely deployed on Amazon EBS.

You can choose from four different volume types to balance optimal price and performance. You can achieve single digit-millisecond latency for high performance database workloads such as SAP HANA or gigabyte per second throughput for large, sequential workloads such as Hadoop. You can change volume types, tune performance, or increase volume size without disrupting your critical applications, so you have cost-effective storage when you need it.

Designed for mission-critical systems, EBS volumes are replicated within an Availability Zone (AZ) and can easily scale to petabytes of data. Also, you can use EBS Snapshots with automated lifecycle policies to back up your volumes in Amazon S3, while ensuring geographic protection of your data and business continuity.

BENIFITS

PERFORMANCE FOR ANY WORKLOAD
EBS volumes are performant for your most demanding workloads, including mission-critical applications such as SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft products. SSD-backed options include a volume designed for high performance applications and a general purpose volume that offers strong price/performance for most workloads. HDD-backed volumes are designed for large, sequential workloads such as big data analytics engines, log processing, and data warehousing. For even higher storage performance per instance, use multiple volumes together.
EASY TO USE
Amazon EBS volumes are easy to create, use, encrypt, and protect. Elastic Volumes capability allows you to increase storage, tune performance up and down, and change volume types without any disruption to your workloads. EBS Snapshots allow you to easily take backups of your volumes for geographic protection of your data. Data Lifecycle Manager (DLM) is an easy-to-use tool for automating snapshot management without any additional overhead or cost.
HIGHLY AVAILABLE AND DURABLE
Amazon EBS architecture offers reliability for mission-critical applications. Each volume is designed to protect against failures by replicating within the Availability Zone (AZ), offering 99.999% availability and an annual failure rate (AFR) of between 0.1%-0.2%. For simple and robust backup, use EBS Snapshots with Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager (DLM) policies to automate snapshot management.
VIRTUALLY UNLIMITED SCALE
Amazon EBS enables you to increase storage without any disruption to your critical workloads. Build applications that require as little as a single GB of storage, or scale up to petabytes of data — all in just a few clicks. Snapshots can be used to quickly restore new volumes across a region's Availability Zones, enabling rapid scale.
