You can now create Amazon RDS for MySQL and Amazon RDS for MariaDB database instances with up to 64TB of storage when using R5 instance types. Previously, R5 instances supported 16TB of storage. The new storage limit is available when using the Provisioned IOPS (IO1) and General Purpose (GP2) storage types.

Larger database sizes allow transactional databases and data warehouses to support larger workloads on a single Amazon RDS instance, without having to shard the data across multiple instances. Learn more by visiting the Storage for Amazon RDS documentation.

Amazon RDS for MySQL and MariaDB make it easy to set up, operate, and scale database deployments in the cloud. The new storage limits are available in all AWS Regions. Please visit Amazon RDS for MySQL Pricing and Amazon RDS for MariaDB Pricing for a full list.
