Paws::EC2::CreateVolume - Arguments for method CreateVolume on Paws::EC2



This class represents the parameters used for calling the method CreateVolume on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud service. Use the attributes of this class as arguments to method CreateVolume.

You shouln’t make instances of this class. Each attribute should be used as a named argument in the call to CreateVolume.

As an example:

  $service_obj->CreateVolume(Att1 => $value1, Att2 => $value2, ...);

Values for attributes that are native types (Int, String, Float, etc) can passed as-is (scalar values). Values for complex Types (objects) can be passed as a HashRef. The keys and values of the hashref will be used to instance the underlying object.


REQUIRED AvailabilityZone => Str

The Availability Zone in which to create the volume. Use DescribeAvailabilityZones to list the Availability Zones that are currently available to you.

    DryRun => Bool

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation. Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation.

    Encrypted => Bool

Specifies whether the volume should be encrypted. Encrypted Amazon EBS volumes may only be attached to instances that support Amazon EBS encryption. Volumes that are created from encrypted snapshots are automatically encrypted. There is no way to create an encrypted volume from an unencrypted snapshot or vice versa. If your AMI uses encrypted volumes, you can only launch it on supported instance types. For more information, see Amazon EBS Encryption in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

    Iops => Int

Only valid for Provisioned IOPS (SSD) volumes. The number of I/O operations per second (IOPS) to provision for the volume, with a maximum ratio of 30 IOPS/GiB.

Constraint: Range is 100 to 20000 for Provisioned IOPS (SSD) volumes

    KmsKeyId => Str

The full ARN of the AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) customer master key (CMK) to use when creating the encrypted volume. This parameter is only required if you want to use a non-default CMK; if this parameter is not specified, the default CMK for EBS is used. The ARN contains the arn:aws:kms namespace, followed by the region of the CMK, the AWS account ID of the CMK owner, the key namespace, and then the CMK ID. For example, arn:aws:kms:us-east-1:012345678910:key/abcd1234-a123-456a-a12b-a123b4cd56ef. If a KmsKeyId is specified, the Encrypted flag must also be set.

    Size => Int

The size of the volume, in GiBs.

Constraints: 1-1024 for standard volumes, 1-16384 for gp2 volumes, and 4-16384 for io1 volumes. If you specify a snapshot, the volume size must be equal to or larger than the snapshot size.

Default: If you’re creating the volume from a snapshot and don’t specify a volume size, the default is the snapshot size.

    SnapshotId => Str

The snapshot from which to create the volume.

    VolumeType => Str

The volume type. This can be gp2 for General Purpose (SSD) volumes, io1 for Provisioned IOPS (SSD) volumes, or standard for Magnetic volumes.

Default: standard
