Amazon EC2 provides the broadest and deepest instance choice to match your workload’s needs. General purpose, compute optimized, memory optimized, storage optimized, and accelerated computing instance types are available that provide the optimal compute, memory, storage, and networking balance for your workloads. Processors from Intel, AMD, NVIDIA and AWS power these instance types and provide additional performance and cost optimizations. Local storage and enhanced networking options available with instance types further help optimize performance for workloads that are disk or network I/O bound. Many instance types also offer bare metal instances that provide your applications with direct access to the processor and memory of the underlying server for running in non-virtualized environments or for applications where you want to use your own hypervisor.
