public class EbsBlockDevice

The EbsBlockDevice type exposes the following members


Public Method EbsBlockDevice()


Public Property DeleteOnTermination System.Boolean

Gets and sets the property DeleteOnTermination.

Indicates whether the EBS volume is deleted on instance termination.

Public Property Encrypted System.Boolean

Gets and sets the property Encrypted.

Indicates whether the EBS volume is encrypted. Encrypted Amazon EBS volumes may only be attached to instances that support Amazon EBS encryption.

Public Property Iops System.Int32

Gets and sets the property Iops.

The number of I/O operations per second (IOPS) that the volume supports. For io1, this represents the number of IOPS that are provisioned for the volume. For gp2, this represents the baseline performance of the volume and the rate at which the volume accumulates I/O credits for bursting. For more information about General Purpose SSD baseline performance, I/O credits, and bursting, see Amazon EBS Volume Types in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

Constraint: Range is 100-20000 IOPS for io1 volumes and 100-10000 IOPS for gp2 volumes.

Condition: This parameter is required for requests to create io1 volumes; it is not used in requests to create gp2, st1, sc1, or standard volumes.

Public Property SnapshotId System.String

Gets and sets the property SnapshotId.

The ID of the snapshot.

Public Property VolumeSize System.Int32

Gets and sets the property VolumeSize.

The size of the volume, in GiB.

Constraints: 1-16384 for General Purpose SSD (gp2), 4-16384 for Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1), 500-16384 for Throughput Optimized HDD (st1), 500-16384 for Cold HDD (sc1), and 1-1024 for Magnetic (standard) volumes. If you specify a snapshot, the volume size must be equal to or larger than the snapshot size.

Default: If you're creating the volume from a snapshot and don't specify a volume size, the default is the snapshot size.

Public Property VolumeType Amazon.EC2.VolumeType

Gets and sets the property VolumeType.

The volume type: gp2, io1, st1, sc1, or standard.

Default: standard
