You can now create Amazon RDS for SQL Server database instances with up to 16TB of storage, up from 4TB. The new storage limit is available when using the Provisioned IOPS and General Purpose (SSD) storage types. In addition, the range for the IOPS to Storage (GB) Ratio has been increased from 10:1 to 50:1.

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

The new storage limits are available in all AWS Regions. Please visit Amazon RDS for SQL Server Pricing for a full list.
