About Lesson

Amazon EBS provides persistent block-level storage volumes that can be attached to Amazon EC2 instances. It offers durable, low-latency storage for applications and databases that require consistent performance and data persistence. EBS volumes are network-attached and can be provisioned with different performance characteristics, such as SSD-backed volumes for high I/O performance or HDD-backed volumes for lower-cost storage. EBS volumes can be detached from one EC2 instance and attached to another, making it easy to migrate data across instances.
