Amazon EBS (Elastic Block Storage) provides raw block-level storage that can be attached to Amazon EC2 and also used in Amazon RDS. Amazon EBS was launched in August 2008. EBS is used at places where there is:

  1. Frequent Data Change
  2. Data that need long-term persistence
  3. Databases where the frequency of read and write operations are more.
  4. Data that need constant updates
  5. Storage for Database Applications
For more information on EBS you can go through this blog:-
