I/O Intensive Apps and Amazon Cloud Improvements: EBS Provisioned IOPS & Optimized Instance Types

James Hamilton puts in perspective the last two new I/O related features coming from Amazon: the high performance I/O EC2 instances and EBS provisioned IOPS together with EBS-optimized EC2 instances:

With the announcement today, EC2 customers now have access to two very high performance storage solutions. The first solution is the EC2 High I/O Instance type announced last week which delivers a direct attached, SSD-powered 100k IOIPS for $3.10/hour. In today’s announcement this direct attached storage solution is joined by a high-performance virtual storage solution. This new type of EBS storage allows the creation of striped storage volumes that can reliably delivery 10,000 to 20,000 IOPS across a dedicated virtual storage network.

I’ve already said it, but this confirms it once again that Amazon is addressing most of the complains of running I/O intensive applications on EC2 and EBS.
