For websites/applications and eCommerce, which storage solution is more desirable and why?

I'm very new to Amazon Cloud Services so I need some direction here.


This article might help you (cached article here).

In brief, S3 is general storage whereas EBS is for mounting volumes attached to EC2 instances. S3 is more reliable than EBS. If you use EBS then you should backup to S3 periodically.
