    I was reviewing the table Amazon EBS vs EC2 Instance Store on page 289 of the Study Guide eBook – AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate SAA-C03 and noticed what I believe may be an incorrect entry.

    In the Lifespan row for Instance Store it states: “The instance store is deleted once you stop, reboot or terminate the EC2 instance.”

    The AWS documentation says the data in an Instance Store persists across reboots. It is only deleted when the instance is stopped or terminated. I also verified the data is available after a reboot when working on Adrian’s SAA-C03 course demo lesson.

    Should this be updated in the pdf or am I misinterpreting the table?

    Hi Motormuff,

    Thank you for raising your inquiry. Yes, you are correct. The instance store will not be deleted when rebooted; it will only be deleted when you stop, hibernate, or terminate the EC2 instance.

    We will do the necessary update for this item. Thanks again, and we wish you all the best.
