AWS Elastic Beanstalk - How to increase instance disk capacity?

0 votes

I'm using ElasticBeanstalk for an app, it has some big initial space requirements. It exceeds the default 8GB capacity of the EBS disk on the EC2 instances. So, I tried to increase the disk capacity by using a bigger EC2 instance type. For instance, I used an m3.large, which provides me with 1x32GB of storage.

However, when the Beanstalk environment launches, it still only shows 8GB. Does anyone know how to get bigger instance storage on ElasticBeanstalk environments?

The 8 GB diskthat you are seeing is an EBS root volume. That's the same no matter what instance type you use, which is why it still only shows 8GB. The 32GB of storage is ephemeral storage attached to the instance not EBS. It's possible that it's not mounting automatically but it's certainly there.

Two options for you -

  1. You can try to get that 32GB ephemeral storage mounted

  2. You can create and mount a separate EBS volume of whatever size you need.
