Amazon EBS vs iCloud: What are the differences?

Developers describe Amazon EBS as "Block level storage volumes for use with Amazon EC2 instances". Amazon EBS volumes are network-attached, and persist independently from the life of an instance. Amazon EBS provides highly available, highly reliable, predictable storage volumes that can be attached to a running Amazon EC2 instance and exposed as a device within the instance. Amazon EBS is particularly suited for applications that require a database, file system, or access to raw block level storage. On the other hand, iCloud is detailed as "*A cloud storage and cloud computing service *". Sign in to iCloud to access your photos, videos, documents, notes, contacts, and more. Use your Apple ID or create a new account to start using Apple services.

Amazon EBS and iCloud belong to "Cloud Storage" category of the tech stack.
