In this video, learn to understand EC2 instance size and type configurations and associated costs.
- (instructor) As I mentioned in an earlier movie,…EC2 can account for the bulk of an Amazon service bill.…So we're going to look at several different aspects…of EC2 cost control.…We're going to start with instance types.…So what this means is,…the compute workload for which the instance is optimized.…So this could be optimized for CPU-heavy workloads,…memory, so on and so forth.…Interestingly, there's also a capability for…machine learning workloads by adding GPUs.…In addition to the type of instance,…also the size of instance.…
And that means how much RAM, how many CPUs,…so on and so forth.…And of course, the count, how many instances.…Now inside of the console,…you may remember that we had started an instance…just to have something running.…I'm going to go ahead and click "Launch Instance"…to start another instance.…And we had looked at the free tier in an earlier movie.…I'm going to go ahead and click Select on the AMI,…or the Amazon Machine Image for Amazon Linux.…And you can see that I have some filters here.…
