Join Brian Eiler for an in-depth discussion in this video What is an EC2 instance type?, part of Amazon Web Services: Implementing and Troubleshooting IaaS Products.
- [Instructor] EC2 comes in a number…of different instance types…and this represents really the type of hardware…that's going to back your virtual server.…They have a nomenclature…that you can see here on the screen.…In our example, we have T2.micro.…The T represents the family,…the two represents the generation,…and the word micro represents the size.…Each type has a specific purpose…and we'll look at how those differ…as we move through this lesson.…
There are three different components.…As we said, there's a family and that is represented here…by the letter T.…There are always going to be letters.…Now the family defines the different capabilities…so we're going to see…a number of different types of instances,…some may be very much focused on storage,…others might be memory optimized,…others might even have graphics cards that are very robust…for specialty cases.…The generation is roughly equivalent to a version number.…That number can increment over time.…It just designates that AWS has gone in…and updated the hardware or added new functionalities…
