New EBS Volume Types Announced

Today, at AWS Summit Chicago, AWS announced two new EBS volume types:

  • Throughput Optimized HDD (st1)
  • Cold HDD (sc1)

These two new volume types are designed for big-data and data warehouse solutions.

More information about these new EBS volume types can be seen at the official blog post.

We’re pleased to announce that Skeddly fully supports these two new volume types in our “Change EBS Volumes” action.

This means, that today, you can mass-convert your existing EBS volumes from General Purpose SSD, Magnetic and Provisioned IOPS SSD to Throughput Optimized and Cold HDD.
