02/2017 - EBS now provides elastic re-sizing of EBS volumes. Previously to change a volume size we would create a snapshot of a volume and select a larger of faster volume. Now those changes can be done dynamically in the AWS console

11/2016 - You now have two new ways to retrieve data from Amazon Glacier.

Expedited retrieval provides you access to your data in 1 – 5 minutes for a flat rate of $0.03 per GB retrieved. Bulk retrieval provides you access to your data in approximately 5 – 12 hours for a flat rate of just $0.0025 per GB. And our existing Standard retrieval, data access within 3 – 5 hours, is now available for a flat rate of $0.01 per GB retrieved.
