Brokered storage volumes upgraded to gp3

September 18, 2023

Storage volumes upgraded to gp3 is happy to announce that we have upgraded all our brokered Elasticsearch/Opensearch plans from gp2 volumes to the high-performance gp3 volumes by default. We have also upgraded all of our brokered database plans to use gp3 as the storage volume type by default.

The gp3 type comes with an increased max throughput per volume/instance versus the previous gp2 type. A full breakdown comparison of gp3 vs gp2 can be found here.

How does this affect me?

These changes will only be applied to new services (database, Elasticsearch/Opensearch) that are created. Existing service instances will continue using gp2 volumes.
