Compliance Frameworks


The EBS volume {AwsEc2EbsVolume} is not of type GP2. For cost reasons, it is recommended to use GP2 (General Purpose SSD) volumes. Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1) is only supposed to be used if you are running applications that are mission-critical and may need more than 10000 IOPS or 160 MiB/s of throughput per volume.

  • Recommended Mitigation

    Change the type of the volume you use unless this volume is mission-critical.
