    Hello,

    Kindly find the below difference:
    • EBS can only be used with EC2 instances while S3 can be used outside EC2.
    • EBS appears as a mountable volume while the S3 requires software to read and write data.
    • EBS can accommodate a smaller amount of data than S3.
    • EBS can only be used by one EC2 instance at a time while S3 can be used by multiple instances.
    • S3 typically experiences write delays while EBS does not.
    So, it totally depends on the requirement when do you want to use whether mounting with an EC2 instance or as a storage facility accessible anywhere.

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you
