Amazon EBS now supports Elastic Volumes and Fast Snapshot Restore (FSR) for io2 Block Express

You can now use Elastic Volumes to dynamically increase the capacity and tune the performance of your io2 Block Express volumes with no downtime or performance impact, in the same manner as other EBS volumes. Additionally, you can now create a fully initialized io2 Block Express volume from a Fast Snapshot Restore (FSR) enabled snapshot. Volumes that are created from FSR-enabled snapshots instantly deliver their provisioned performance. These features add to the capabilities of the highest-performance EBS volume type – io2 Block Express.
