Elastic Block Store (EBS)

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) is an easy to use, high performance block storage service designed for use with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) for both throughput and transaction intensive workloads at any scale (Amazon website).

For AWS environments, Turbonomic discovers storage capacity and recognizes whether it is ephemeral “instance” storage or persistent EBS storage. For EBS storage, Turbonomic can recommend and execute storage resize actions.
