# EBS - Elastic Block Store

EBS is the connected hard drives to your EC2 instances.

"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. A broad range of workloads, such as relational and non-relational databases, enterprise applications, containerized applications, big data analytics engines, file systems, and media workflows are widely deployed on Amazon EBS." - AWS Website

We also allow you to view the volumes for each EC2 instance in the side navigation. This is one of the things that makes Commandeer so handy. As you are navigating your side navigation, you can always quickly jump to any interconnected parts of your system.
