These are the scripts that you will need to attach and use HIO EBS Volumes with your servers in AWS. I have created many Templates based on this one. This is NOT a full template. This is a starting point to add your scripts to a server that has attached EBS Volumes. The EBS Supports RAID-0 and backups.
