Learn to manage the storage space of your EC2 instance using Amazon EBS

Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) provides persistent block level storage volumes for use with Amazon EC2 instances in the AWS Cloud.  Each Amazon EBS volume is automatically replicated within its Availability Zone to protect you from component failure. This provides high availability and durability. Amazon EBS volumes offer consistent, low-latency performance needed to run your workloads.

During this laboratory, you will learn to create an EC2 instance with an additional EBS volume. You will learn to attach and detach an EBS to/from a specific EC2 instance, take a snapshot, and master how to delete a volume.
