It is always interesting to zoom in on the history of a single AWS service or feature and watch how it has evolved over time in response to customer feedback. For example, Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) launched a decade ago and has been gaining more features and functionality every since. Here are a few of the most significant announcements:
August 2008 – We launched EBS in production form, with support for volumes of up to 1 TB and snapshots to S3.
September 2010 – We gave you the ability to Tag EBS Volumes.
August 2012 – We launched Provisioned IOPS for EBS volumes, allowing you to dial in the level of performance that you need.
June 2014 – We gave you the ability to create SSD-backed EBS volumes.
March 2015 – We gave you the ability to create EBS volumes of up to 16 TB
