Amazon Elastic Block Store endpoints and quotas - AWS General Reference

Amazon Elastic Block Store endpoints and quotas

The following are the service endpoints and service quotas for this service. To connect programmatically to an AWS service, you use an endpoint. In addition to the standard AWS endpoints, some AWS services offer FIPS endpoints in selected Regions. For more information, see AWS service endpoints. Service quotas, also referred to as limits, are the maximum number of service resources or operations for your AWS account. For more information, see AWS service quotas.

The quota for concurrent snapshot copies per destination Region is not adjustable using Service Quotas. However, you can request an increase for this quota by contacting AWS Support.

The following considerations apply to the Storage modifications quotas:

  • You can perform simultaneous modifications on volumes that have a combined storage up to these quotas. However, you can perform simultaneous modifications only on volumes that have a combined storage up to your current combined provisioned storage. For example, if the Storage modifications for General Purpose SSD (gp3) volumes quota is 200 TiB, and you currently have 120 TiB provisioned across your gp3 volumes, you can perform simultaneous storage modifications on gp3 volumes that have a combined storage up to 120 TiB.

  • These quotas should not be greater than the equivalent maximum quotas. For example, the Storage modifications for General Purpose SSD (gp3) volumes quota should not be greater than the Storage for General Purpose SSD (gp3) volumes quota.

The following considerations apply to the IOPS modifications quotas:

  • You can perform simultaneous modifications on volumes that have a combined IOPS up to these quotas. However, you can perform simultaneous modifications only on volumes that have a combined IOPS up to your current combined provisioned IOPS. For example, if the IOPS modifications for Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1) volumes quota is 50,000 IOPS, and you currently have 30,000 IOPS provisioned across your io1 volumes, you can perform simultaneous IOPS modifications on io1 volumes that have a combined IOPS up to 30,000 IOPS.

  • These quotas should not be greater than the equivalent maximum quotas. For example, the IOPS modifications for Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1) volumes quota should not be greater than the IOPS for Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1) volumes quota.
