Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) now offers an option to provision storage throughput for Amazon MSK, enabling customers with high throughput workloads to seamlessly scale I/O without having to provision additional brokers. By provisioning up to 1000 MiB/s of throughput to Amazon MSK storage volumes, you can scale I/O requirements past 250 MiB/s without having to provision additional brokers. When configured, you pay a low rate for the amount of storage throughput provisioned in the clusters.

You can enable provisioned storage throughput in a few clicks for new or existing clusters. Provisioned storage throughput is supported in all AWS regions where Amazon MSK is available except China regions.

With Amazon MSK, you spend more time building innovative applications and less time managing clusters.
