Understanding different EBS SSD Storages
Greetings from in28minutes.com.
SSD (Solid-state drives) are those storages that are cost-effective and best for small I/O operations and can be used as a boot volume. It is suitable for -
- Transactional workloads
- Business-critical applications that require high throughput performance
- Large database workloads such as MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, etc.
In this read, we will take a good look at some of the differences between the different types of EBS SSD storages. Let’s get started.
|Attribute||General purpose SSD (gp2)||Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1)|
|Description||This volume balances the price and workload||This volume is used for critical low-latency or high-throughput workload applications|
|Size||1 GB to 16 TB||4 GB to 16 GB|
|Maximum Throughput/Volume||250 MiB/s||1000 MiB/s|
|Use case||(1) Low latency interactive apps (2) Development or Test environment (3) System boot volumes or Virtual desktops||(1) Business-critical applications that require high throughput (2) Large database workloads such as MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, etc.|
