Support for provisined IOPS for Amazon RDS instances

AWS CloudFormation now supports specifying provisioned I/O operations per second (IOPS) for Amazon RDS instances. You can set this value from 1000–10,000 in 1000 IOPS increments by using the new Iops property in AWS::RDS::DBInstance.

For more information about specifying IOPS for RDS instances, see Provisioned IOPS in the Amazon Relational Database Service User Guide.
