What is Amazon EBS?

Amazon EBS volumes are network-attached, and persist independently from the life of an instance. Amazon EBS provides highly available, highly reliable, predictable storage volumes that can be attached to a running Amazon EC2 instance and exposed as a device within the instance. Amazon EBS is particularly suited for applications that require a database, file system, or access to raw block level storage.

What is Amazon S3?

Amazon Simple Storage Service provides a fully redundant data storage infrastructure for storing and retrieving any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web

What is OpenEBS?

OpenEBS allows you to treat your persistent workload containers, such as DBs on containers, just like other containers. OpenEBS itself is deployed as just another container on your host.

Insanely low prices, quite easy to use, and they're fast. Plus they provide great support. And they're integrated with other AWS services, like CloudFront.

Seriously, this is the best service of it's kind out there.

In October 2008 we moved to using scribe (now a custom branch), which has served us very well over the past 5+ years that we’ve been using it. We take the logs scribe aggregates and move them into Amazon S3 for storage, which makes using EMR on AWS seamless.

S3 serves as zero-knowledge temporary storage. Files are encrypted in the browser before being uploaded in chunks to S3. When the target recipient downloads them the chunks are reassembled and decrypted in the browser. Files expire after a week and the encrypted chunks are permanently deleted from S3.

Since we generate a static website for our website, AWS S3 provides hosting for us so that we don't have to run our own servers just to serve up static content.

The pricing is great as you only pay for what you use.

This object storage is always evolving and getting harder to explain. We use it for 1) hosting every static websites, 2) datalake to store every transaction and 3) query with Athena / S3 Select.
