A while ago I read, that you get 3 IOPS per GB for gp2 SSD volumes. For example, that would be 24 IOPS for 8 GB volume. Now I read the documentation (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/EBSVolumeTypes.html) and it states:
... Between a minimum of 100 IOPS (at 33.33 GiB and below) and a maximum of 10,000 IOPS (at 3,334 GiB and above), baseline performance scales linearly at 3 IOPS per GiB of volume size. A gp2 volume can range in size from 1 GiB to 16 TiB.
So if I create 1 GB volume, will I be capped to 3 IOPS, or 100 IOPS?
UPDATE: In the official AWS forum someone from Amazon talks about 24 IOPS for 8 GB drive, but this was in 2014. What has changed since then? Limit is lifted? (https://forums.aws.amazon.com/thread.jspa?threadID=162482)
