Some fall 2013 AWS cloud storage and compute enhancements
AWS October newsletter and enhancement updates
- EC2 (Elastic Cloud Compute) has been enhanced with reserved micro instances
- EBS (Elastic Block Storage) IOPS to volume capacity ratio requirement has been changed from 10:1 t 30:1 meaning that 4,000 IOP’s per 133GB volume are now possible (as opposed to 400GB volumes to achieve 4,000 IOPS).
- Redshift service is now available in the Asia Pacific Singapore and Sydney regions
What this means
AWS is arguably the largest of the public cloud services with a diverse set of services and options across multiple geographic regions to meet different customer needs. As such it is not surprising to see AWS continue to expand their service offerings expanding their portfolio both in terms of features, functionalities along with extending their presences in different geographies.
Lets see what else AWS announces next week in Las Vegas at their 2013 re:Invent event.
