Amazon EBS is convenient and easy to provision, but it was designed to provide storage to Amazon EC2, not containers. In highly dynamic Kubernetes environments, this leads to problems, such as lack of cross-AZ HA, limited density of volumes per host, slow and unreliable failover, and ultimately, increased costs. Additionally, customers still need to figure out how to solve backup, DR, data security and cross-region migrations.
