#2985 Change: Remove standard storage option from Fedora EC2 images
Closed: Accepted 4 months ago by zbyszek. Opened 5 months ago by bcotton.

AWS offers multiple types of block storage depending on the needs of the individual user. Fedora images are uploaded with standard and gp2 currently (gp3 will replace gp2 very soon with another approved change).

The standard storage is a previous generation storage option with less performance and less consistent performance than the other storage types. It also causes some confusion when AWS customers look through the list of Fedora cloud images in the EC2 console because now they see four images (aarch64 + x86_64, both with standard and gp2 storage).

Removing the standard storage option would reduce the amount of images that appear in the console, but AWS customers could still provision Fedora on standard storage during the instance creation process if they really want that storage option.

Owners, do not implement this work until the FESCo vote has explicitly ended.
The Fedora Program Manager will create a tracking bug in Bugzilla for this Change, which is your indication to proceed.
See the FESCo ticket policy and the Changes policy for more information.

REMINDER: This ticket is for FESCo members to vote on the proposal. Further discussion should happen in the devel list thread linked above.

+1 (but I'm the change owner, so that's not worth much here) 🤭

After a week, the vote is
APPROVED (+4,0,-0)
