http://serverfault.com – I am trying to create a system where users can upload their data (audio, text) which can run into around 200 MB per user. I am trying to figure out what is the best way to go ahead - using S3 or EBS. Here's what I have found till now based on my research EBS advantage lower latency with less variation fast directory listing and searching no consistency delays S3 advantages For a streaming use case, S3 may be a better choice provides a web services interface for storing and retrieving data can be secured with tokens EBS Disadvantage may fail and lose their data data should be backed (HowTos)
