First of all, create a new EBS and attach it to your instance through the AWS website.
Now login through SSH and type:
This is to check whether or not your instance see the new EBS.
Then, we mount it with these commands:
mke2fs -F -j /dev/xvdf mkdir /mnt/ebs mount /dev/xvdf /mnt/ebs
If you want your EBS to be mounted automatically when you restart the server. Do this:
sudo nano /etc/fstab
And add this line:
/dev/xvdf /mnt/ebs ext3 defaults 0 0
