Overview

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, offering high availability and durability. Amazon EBS volumes offer the consistent and low-latency performance needed to run your workloads. With Amazon EBS, you can scale your usage up or down within minutes – all while paying a low price for only what you provision.

Nutanix Volumes is a native scale-out block storage solution that provides direct block-level access via the iSCSI protocol to the Acropolis Distributed Storage Fabric (ADSF). It enables enterprise applications running on external servers to leverage the benefits of the hyperconverged Nutanix architecture.
