FROM THE NEWSROOM: Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces a raise up to 4,000 IOPS per Amazon EBS Provisioned IOPS volume. AWS Cloud launched this program last year offering up to 1000 IOPS volume performance and this raise displays a 4x times increase.
The main purpose of these provisioned IOPS volumes is to offer a conventional high performance level for I/O based workloads like distributed file systems, databases and other business applications, that all are offered on AWS Marketplace.
Now, from one single volume, you can easily have up to 4,000 IOPS. If you need performance even more than that, you have the option to link up and stripe several volumes that will deliver hundreds and thousands of IOPS. Keeping in view your desired level of performance, you can set the level yourself and you’ll get the performance from EBS in a consistent manner.
It is recommended that you must launch the Amazon Web Service EC2 instance as “EBS-optimized” instances that ensure the full utilization of the IOPS provisioned on an EBS volume. This will provide dedicated throughput across Amazon EBS and Amazon EC2. Currently, the EBS-optimized option is currently available for our m1.large, m1.xlarge, m2.2xlarge, m2.4xlarge, m3.xlarge, m3.2xlarge and c1.xlarge instance types.
The simplest way to start using the services of Amazon EBS provisioned IOPS is by launching a product with one-click available on AWS market place. For our readers’ information, we would like to inform you that AWS market place is an online store enabling you to search, purchase and deploy AWS supported softwares.
AWS market place products, Amazon EBS-optimized instances and EBS provisioned IOPS volumes are now supported in all AWS regions with an exception of GovCloud. To read more about Amazon Web Service, visit the profile of AWS EC2 by tapping on the button below:
