AWS EBS is a cloud storage service from Amazon Web Services. It offers high durability, availability, and flexibility for data storage.

AWS EBS is designed to provide persistent block level storage volumes for use with Amazon EC2 instances. Each EBS volume is automatically replicated within its Availability Zone to protect your data from component failure. EBS volumes offer the ability to take snapshots, which are backups of your data taken at a specific point in time. You can create new EBS volumes from snapshots, and delete volumes.

AWS EBS provides three volume types:
General Purpose SSD (gp2),
Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1), and
Cold HDD (sc1).

AWS EBS is priced per GB-month of storage used, and you only pay for the storage you use. For example, if you use a 10 GB EBS volume for one month, you will pay 10 GB-months x the price for the volume type you use. EBS also charges for any I/O requests made to the volume.
