Starting today, Elastic Volumes extends support to Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) magnetic (standard) volume type. You can now dynamically increase capacity or change the type of magnetic (standard) volumes with no downtime or performance impact using a simple API call or a few console clicks. You can streamline and automate changes using Amazon CloudWatch with Amazon Lambda.

This change is available in all Amazon Web Services regions, including China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet and China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD at no additional cost. CloudWatch and Lambda usage is billed at standard rates.
