AWS EBS volume types

AWS EBS volume types

  • Solid state drive (SSD) volumes
    • General Purpose SSD volumes (GP2)
    • Provisioned IOPS SSD volumes
  • Hard disk drive (HDD) volumes
    • Throughput Optimized HDD volumes (st1)
    • Cold HDD volumes (sc1)
  • Previous generation volumes
    • Magnetic (standard) volume
SSD and Magnetic volumes are Bootable means you can install OS into this volume.
HDD volums are NON-Bootable means you can not install OS into this volume. you can use this volume like D drive or E drive.

GP2 is best option as compare to Magnetic, as per performance wise and cost.
