Starting today, you can create Amazon RDS for Oracle database instances with up to 32TiB of storage. Existing database instances using SSD-backed storage can also be scaled up to 32TiB storage without any downtime

The new storage limit is an increase from 16TiB and is supported for Provisioned IOPS and General Purpose SSD storage types.

The 32TiB storage size supports larger transactional databases, it also allows you to consolidate database shards into a single database instance, which will simplify your application code and reduce database administration work. To learn more, please visit the Storage for Amazon RDS documentation page.

Amazon RDS makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. See Amazon RDS for Oracle Pricing for regional availability.
