AWS Elastic Block Store

Elastic Block Store (EBS) is a block-level storage service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that allows you to create and attach persistent block storage volumes to your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances. It provides highly available and durable block-level storage volumes that can be used with Amazon EC2 instances to store data.

EBS volumes are replicated within an Availability Zone (AZ) to provide redundancy and durability. You can also take snapshots of EBS volumes, which are stored in Amazon S3, to provide a backup of your data. EBS volumes can be attached to EC2 instances as block devices, allowing you to use them as a hard drive or to store data for databases, file systems, and other applications.

Intro to AWS Security Groups

AWS Security Group is a virtual firewall that controls inbound and outbound traffic for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances and other resources in Amazon Web Services (AWS). It acts as a virtual firewall that regulates traffic based on rules that you define.

Each AWS Security Group is associated with one or more instances, and you can specify the inbound and outbound traffic rules for that group. You can use security groups to allow or deny traffic from specific IP addresses, protocols, or ports. You can also create rules that allow traffic from other security groups, enabling you to control access to different resources within your VPC.
