Why am I forced to attach an additional 150 GB disk to VC1L?


#1

I want to use a VC1L for the large amount of RAM and CPU. For my use case, I don’t need more than 50 GB of storage for it. Whenever I try to create a VC1L with only one 50 GB volume, I receive an error stating that the sum of the disks on VC1L must equal 151-200 GB. Why am I forced to attach a whopping 150 extra gigabytes of storage that I don’t even need?

Now it is possible to create a smaller one, and saving money…

Same on ARM64. I just want to run a more powerful instance with a snapshot from a smaller one, why am i forced to add more disk?
