S3 vs EBS

Our Production environment is hosted on AWS. We run Jaspersoft which generates the reports for the users.
My questions is how fast is S3 when compare to EBS.  I understand EBS is faster compared to S3 but the problem why we can't use EBS in our scenario is because of the limitation that it can only be attached to a single instance and we're not sure in which instance the user request will be sent by the load balancer.

Could someone please help.

S3 is not a working storage like EBS, although you can mount a file system over it.
Performance for an application that needs a regular F: drive will be crappy.

USe EFS instead - a new service that acts as a CIFS share.
