You can now launch M5 and T3 instance types when using Amazon RDS for Oracle in the AWS China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, and the AWS China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet.  

Amazon EC2 M5 instances are the next generation of Amazon EC2 General Purpose compute instances. M5 instances offer a balance of compute, memory and networking resources for a broad range of database workloads. M5 instances are powered by 2.5 GHz Intel Xeon Scalable processors and deliver improved price/performance compared to M4 instances. 

Amazon EC2 T3 instances are the next generation of the Amazon Burstable Performance instance types. T3 instances offer a balance of compute, memory, and network resources and are ideal for database workloads with moderate CPU usage that experience temporary spikes in use. 

You can easily scale up to these new instance types by modifying your existing DB instance in the AWS Management Console. Please refer to the Amazon RDS User Guide for more details.
