Amazon EMR Serverless introduces Shuffle-optimized disks delivering improved performance for I/O intensive workloads

Amazon EMR Serverless is a serverless option in Amazon EMR that makes it simple for data engineers and data scientists to run open-source big data analytics frameworks without configuring, managing, and scaling clusters or servers. An EMR Serverless application uses workers to execute workloads, allowing users to configure ephemeral storage per worker based on the workload’s needs. Today, we are excited to introduce Shuffle-optimized disks on Amazon EMR Serverless, offering increased storage capacity (up to 2TB) and higher IOPS delivering better performance for I/O-intensive Spark and Hive workloads.
