    Hi nathan-cho,

    AWS still offers magnetic storage types with st1 and sc1. You can also create them manually on the EC2 console and they have their own use cases.

    Example workloads with high throughput on a consistent basis, for use with EC2 instances and Amazon EMR clusters while providing very low costs.

    Throughput Optimized HDD (st1) – Designed for high-throughput MapReduce, Kafka, ETL, log processing, and data warehouse workloads

    Cold HDD (sc1) – Designed for workloads similar to those for Throughput Optimized HDD that are accessed less frequently
