Amazon EBS Multi-Attach


Amazon Elastic Block Store or EBS is a durable block-based storage device that can be attached to your EC2 instance.

This feature lets you get notifications whenever an event happens on your S3 bucket. These notifications can then be forwarded to an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic, Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) queue, and AWS Lambda function.
