Today, Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) announced that io2 Block Express volumes are available on all EC2 instances built on the Nitro system. All new io2 volumes used with EC2 Nitro instances will automatically benefit from the latest generation of EBS storage server architecture designed to deliver consistent sub-millisecond latency and 99.999% durability. With a single io2 Block Express volume, customers can achieve 256,000 IOPS, 4GB/s of throughput, and storage capacity of 64 TiB. io2 Block Express has the lowest p99.9 I/O latency and the best outlier latency control among major cloud providers, making it the ideal choice for the most I/O-intensive, mission-critical deployments of SAP HANA, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and IBM DB2.
