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 Rackspace Cloud Files?

Cloud Files, powered by OpenStack®, provides an easy to use online storage for files and media which can be delivered globally at blazing speeds over Akamai's content delivery network (CDN).

        Review ofRackspace Cloud FilesRackspace Cloud Files

        We use Rackspace Cloud Files to host static assets ( js/ css / some media ) and we're really liking it.

        tbh we use it because of the ability to serve files from Akamai CDN. You get the worlds best CDN server for a fraction of the cost.

        To conclude, it might not be as cheap as S3 , but if you care about files being served at the fastest way possible then Rackspace Cloud Files is the way to go.

        대부분의 EC2 의 스토리지는 EBS 를 마운트해서 사용하고 있습니다. 특히 데이터베이스 서버들의 경우 주기적으로 스냅샷을 생성하여 손쉽게 백업 관리를 진행하고 있습니다.
