Updates to the AWS Management Console and Provisioned IOPS

After being away from the office for a few days, I noticed today that there is a updated user interface to the Amazon Web Services console.

In addition to the updated user interface a number of updates have been included for the Launch Instance Wizard.

Configuring Instance VPC and Subnet Details

On configuring your instance you may now select your VPC and Subnet details from an existing configuration or if required create a new VPC and/or subnet from the wizard.

Security Groups 

You may not view the rules for a particular security group before assigning to your instance as well as copying the rule set of an existing security group and if required modify the rules.

One other notable change which occurred in the past week has been to provisioned IOPS and the ratio to capacity. Previously, this was configured as 10:1, now the ratio of IOPS to capacity has been increased to 30:1. So previously when a 100 GB EBS volume  could only provide a 1,000 IOPS, you can now obtain 3,000 IOPS from the same size EBS volume.
