EC2 EBS is not optimized


Ensuring that EC2 instances are EBS-optimized will help to deliver enhanced performance for EBS workloads. They provide dedicated throughput to Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes, which can result in improved EBS performance. Additionally, EBS-optimized instances use a separate network connection for EBS traffic, which can reduce network latency and improve the performance of EBS-intensive workloads.
