Elastic IP

An Elastic IP address is a static IPv4 address designed for dynamic cloud computing. 
An Elastic IP address is associated with your AWS account. 
With an Elastic IP address, you can mask the failure of an instance or software by rapidly remapping the address to another instance in your account.

IAM Role

Similar to a user
It is an AWS identity with permission policies that determine what the identity can and cannot do in AWS.
However, instead of being uniquely associated with one person, a role is intended to be assumable by anyone who needs it.
