Amazon RDS for SQL Server now allows you to reconfigure the volume type and Provisioned IOPS (PIOPS) upon snapshot restore. You can restore or point-in-time-restore (PiTR) to a different storage type than the source instance. When restoring the database instance, you can easily change the storage type and PIOPS in the Amazon RDS Console.
This feature is now available in all AWS regions. For more information on the different storage types offered in Amazon RDS, please visit RDS Storage documentation.
