       VM::EC2::BlockDevice::EBS - Object describing how to initialize an Amazon EBS volume from
       an image


         use VM::EC2;

         $image      = $ec2->describe_images(-image_id=>'ami-123456');
         my @devices = $image->blockDeviceMapping;
         for my $d (@devices) {
           my $ebs = $d->ebs;
           my $snapshot_id    = $ebs->snapshotId;
           my $size           = $ebs->volumeSize;
           my $delete         = $ebs->deleteOnTermination;


       This object is used to describe the parameters used to create an Amazon EBS volume when
       running an image. Generally you will not call this directly, as all its methods are passed
       through by the VM::EC2::BlockDevice object returned from the blockDeviceMapping() call.

       See VM::EC2::BlockDevice for a simpler way to get the information needed.

       It is easy to confuse this with VM::EC2::BlockDevice::Mapping::EBS, which describes the
       attachment of an existing EBS volume to an instance. This class is instead used to store
       the parameters that will be used to generate a new EBS volume when an image is launched.


       The following object methods are supported:

        snapshotId  -- ID of the snapshot used to create this EBS when an
                       instance is launched from this image.
        volumeSize  -- Size of the EBS volume (in gigs).
        deleteOnTermination -- Whether this EBS will be deleted when the
                       instance terminates. Note that this will return
                       perl 0/1 values rather than the strings "false"/"true"
        volumeType  -- The volume type, one of "standard" or "io1"
        iops        -- The number of I/O operations per second that the volume
                       supports, an integer between 100 and 2000. Only valid for
                       volumes of type "io1".
