Amazon Elastic Block Store endpoints and quotas - AWS General Reference

Amazon Elastic Block Store endpoints and quotas

The following are the service endpoints and service quotas for this service. To connect programmatically to an AWS service, you use an endpoint. For more information, see AWS service endpoints. Service quotas, also referred to as limits, are the maximum number of service resources or operations for your AWS account. For more information, see AWS service quotas.

Service Endpoints

Use the Amazon EBS endpoints in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) to manage EBS volumes, snapshots, and encryption. For more information, see Amazon EBS Actions in the Amazon EC2 API Reference.

Use the EBS direct API endpoints to directly read the data on your EBS snapshots, and identify the difference between two snapshots. For more information, see Accessing the Contents of an EBS Snapshot in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.
