New EBS Volume Type (io2) – 100x Higher Durability and 10x More IOPS/GiB

We launched EBS Volumes with Provisioned IOPS way back in 2012. These volumes are a great fit for your most I/O-hungry and latency-sensitive applications because you can dial in the level of performance that you need, and then (with the launch of Elastic Volumes in 2017) change it later.

Introducing Amazon Honeycode – Build Web & Mobile Apps Without Writing Code

Back in 2009 I received an email from an AWS developer named Andy. He told me that he and his team of five engineers had built a product called CloudBerryExplorer for Amazon S3.
