Maximum GP2 Storage Limit 20TB per region

Be warned, you may run into a storage limit when attempting to provision an EBS volume. The limits are set on a combination of volume type and region. If you hit the limit, you’ll just have to contact AWS support to have them increase your limit.

When in doubt, check the EBS limits.

At the time of this writing, they are:

Resource Default Limit
Number of EBS volumes 5,000
Number of EBS snapshots 10,000
Total volume storage of General Purpose SSD (gp2) volumes 20 TiB
Total volume storage of Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1) volumes 20 TiB
Total volume storage of Throughput Optimized HDD (st1) 20 TiB
Total volume storage of Cold HDD (sc1) 20 TiB
Total volume storage of Magnetic volumes 20 TiB
