The data stored in local instance store will only be there as long as the instance is alive. Though, data that is stored in an EBS volume will be present independently even if the instance is terminated. Therefore, it is recommended that you use the local instance store for all the temporary data and for all the data requiring higher level of durability, it is recommended that you use EBS volumes.
