Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) provides persistent block level storage volumes for use with Amazon EC2 instances in the AWS Cloud.
Each Amazon EBS volume is automatically replicated within its Availability Zone to protect you from component failure, offering high availability and durability. Amazon EBS volumes offer the consistent and low-latency performance needed to run your workloads. With Amazon EBS, you can scale your usage up or down within minutes – all while paying a low price for only what you provision.

+ Reliable, secure storage
Each Amazon EBS volume is automatically replicated within its Availability Zone to protect you from component failure. Amazon EBS encryption provides seamless support for data at rest security and data in motion security between EC2 instances and EBS volumes. Amazon’s flexible access control policies allow you to specify who can access which EBS volumes. Access control plus encryption offers a strong defense-in-depth security strategy for your data.

+ Consistent and low-latency performance
Amazon EBS General Purpose (SSD) volumes and Amazon EBS Provisioned IOPS (SSD) volumes deliver low-latency through SSD technology and consistent I/O performance scaled to the needs of your application. Stripe multiple volumes together to achieve even higher I/O performance.

+ Backup, restore, innovate
Backup your data by taking point-in-time snapshots of your Amazon EBS volumes. Boost the agility of your business by using Amazon EBS snapshots to create new EC2 instances.

+ Quickly scale up, easily scale down
Increase or decrease block storage and performance within minutes, enjoying the freedom to adjust as your needs evolve. Commission thousands of volumes simultaneously.

+ Geographic flexibility
Amazon EBS provides the ability to copy snapshots across AWS regions, enabling geographical expansion, data center migration, and disaster recovery.

 Expedia is committed to continuous innovation, technology, and platform improvements to create a great experience for its customers. The Expedia Worldwide Engineering (EWE) organization supports all websites under the Expedia brand. Expedia began using Amazon Web Services (AWS) in 2010 to launch Expedia Suggest Service (ESS), a typeahead suggestion service that helps customers enter travel, search, and location information correctly. According to the company’s metrics, an error page is the main reason for site abandonment. Expedia wanted global users to find what they were looking for quickly and without errors. At the time, Expedia operated all its services from data centers in Chandler, AZ. The engineering team realized that they had to run ESS in locations physically close to customers to enable a quick and responsive service with minimal network latency.
