Patch for cost reduction of copy to S3

Patch for cost reduction of copy to S3

Installation of the patch will reduce costs drastically for customers who are using S3 (Between 5 to 20 times less expensive than previous version)

The improvements are:

  • For copied volumes which are larger than 512GB, worker’s volume type will be sc1 instead of gp2
  • Better data reading performance which results in creating up to 2 Worker volumes instead of up to 10 worker volumes for copying the data to S3

A patch for this issue is included in the latest version of CPM, v2.5.0, please upgrade to see these improvements.
Reference number – N2WS-4951, changed in v2.5
