Is it possible to detach EBS storage from one cluster and attach it to another?

Is it possible to detach EBS storage from one cluster and attach it to another?

New Contributor

We are launching our cluster on AWS using Cloudbreak, using EBS volumes as our data store for hadoop.

I wanted to know if it's possible to detach these volumes and attach them to another cluster, in case a need to move to a new cluster arises (in order to change intsance types, move to another region or any other reason that might come up)

Also, are there any best practices for such a scenario?

Thanks.

Hi @Yaron Idan,

Currently Cloudbreak doesn't support reusing EBS volumes.

You could use s3 as a storage. In this case you have to configure it in the blueprint and Cloudbreak UI has an advanced option "Seamless S3 Access".
