Amazon EBS Extends Elastic Volumes to Support EBS Magnetic (Standard) Volume Type

Posted on: Jun 28, 2018

Starting today, Elastic Volumes extends support to Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) magnetic (standard) volume type. You can now dynamically increase capacity or change the type of magnetic (standard) volumes with no downtime or performance impact using a simple API call or a few console clicks. You can streamline and automate changes using Amazon CloudWatch with AWS Lambda.

This feature is available in all commercial and government AWS regions at no additional cost. CloudWatch and Lambda usage is billed at standard rates. To learn more about Elastic Volumes, see the Elastic Volumes user guide.
