Amazon EBS direct APIs now supports creating 64 TB EBS Snapshots directly from any block storage data, including on-premises data. With this new capability, customers can use EBS Snapshots for disaster recovery of their largest on-premises workloads and achieve business continuity in AWS at lower costs.
Previously customers could use EBS direct APIs to create EBS Snapshots of volumes up to 16 TB in size. Customers can now use EBS direct APIs to create EBS Snapshots of 64 TB volumes and recover them to Amazon EBS io2 Block Express volumes.
You can use Amazon EBS direct APIs to create 64 TB EBS Snapshots in all AWS regions where Amazon EBS direct APIs are available.
