AWS local-storage

Jan 28, 2014 by hana
Hello all
I started reading about AWS, and I read that in order to have persistent data EBS storage is required.  What about instance storage?
Your advice is highly appreciated
Thanks in advanced

In order to have your data safe and persistent you should make use of the  rather than ephemeral storage. EBS storage will be separate to the instance storage that you have. If you use instance storage and then stop the instance your storage is gone.
