Join Brian Eiler for an in-depth discussion in this video Instance size and implications, part of Amazon Web Services: Implementing and Troubleshooting IaaS Products.

In order to change it,…you would have to terminate the instance,…and then relaunch one.…So, when you're looking at the different sizes,…one key thing to kind of think about,…is that whenever you're moving from one size to the next,…so when you increment from, say, nano to micro or beyond,…it oftentimes doubles the number of resources…that are assigned to that particular instance.…The way you find out what you're going to need,…is by looking at your workload requirements.…Hopefully, if it's a software vendor…
