Learn how to identify the use cases for and features of Elastic Block Storage in AWS.
When you create a EC2 Instance,…you're asking AWS to start a virtual server for you.…Although it's sometimes easy to forget,…this takes place on actual hardware,…somewhere deep in Amazon's data center facilities…for that availability zone.…Of course, a virtual machine is simply a way of giving you…a virtualized slice of what's on the underlying hardware.…A bit of the CPU, some of the RAM, et cetera.…So, in the beginning, if you needed hard drive space,…you used what's called Instance Storage,…a slice of the hardware's disk drive.…
Instance Storage uses the disk attached…to your instance's hardware.…It has the lowest possible latency,…because it's right there.…It survives reboots, but not stops and restarts.…It's suitable for ephemeral storage,…and it might be disk- or SSD-based.…Instance Storage does not persist…when the instance is stopped,…cannot be encrypted,…is not part of a snapshot taken for an AMI,…cannot be detached or backed up on its own,…and has a fixed size that's tied to the instance size.…
It's good for temporary uses like caching,…
Join AWS architect Brandon Rich and learn how to configure object storage solutions and lifecycle management in Simple Storage Service (S3), a web service offered by AWS, and migrate, back up, and replicate relational data in RDS.
