AWS releases Amazon EBS io2 Volume
According to Amazon, this new io2 Volume offers 100x higher volume durability compared to io1 Amazon EBS volumes. This helps reduce the likelihood of storage failures and makes the primary copy of data more resilient. The solution also allows for 10x higher input/output operations per second (IOPS) at the same price of io1. 

Amazon explained that this new solution is ideal for performance-intensive business critical applications that require high availability. Examples include ERP, CRM, and online transaction systems. 

“Customers rely on highly durable AWS block storage to keep their business-critical applications running at any scale,” said Mai-Lan Tomsen Bukovec, vice president of block and object storage at AWS. “Today, we are excited to announce new high durability io2 volumes, that provide existing customers 100x higher volume durability than io1 at no additional cost. For new customers where five nines of storage durability is critical to migrate on-premises business critical applications to AWS, io2 brings together performance, durability, and agility all in a single EBS volume.”
