Amazon EBS vs RunAbove: What are the differences?

Amazon EBS: 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; RunAbove: Extreme High-Performance Cloud Computing & Object Storage. We give you full access to the OpenStack API, which our compute (Nova) and storage (Swift) solutions are based on. This means no provider lock-in and easy automation of all your deployments. You can also manage your account and billing details via our RESTful API. You can choose between Horizon or OVH's easy-to-use web panel.

Amazon EBS and RunAbove can be categorized as "Cloud Storage" tools.

Some of the features offered by Amazon EBS are:

  • Amazon EBS allows you to create storage volumes from 1 GB to 1 TB that can be mounted as devices by Amazon EC2 instances. Multiple volumes can be mounted to the same instance.
  • Amazon EBS enables you to provision a specific level of I/O performance if desired, by choosing a Provisioned IOPS volume. This allows you to predictably scale to thousands of IOPS per Amazon EC2 instance.
  • Storage volumes behave like raw, unformatted block devices, with user supplied device names and a block device interface. You can create a file system on top of Amazon EBS volumes, or use them in any other way you would use a block device (like a hard drive).

On the other hand, RunAbove provides the following key features:

  • OpenStack Nova and Swift API
  • Ready to use SDKs
  • Easy to use Runabove API

"Point-in-time snapshots" is the primary reason why developers consider Amazon EBS over the competitors, whereas "SSDs" was stated as the key factor in picking RunAbove.
