Amazon EC2 provides a broad selection of instance types optimized to fit different use cases. Customers now have additional ways to easily discover and compare instance types based on CPU, memory, storage, networking performance, regional presence, pricing, and more.  

The new “Instance Types” section of the EC2 Console allows customers to filter, search, and compare instance types. In addition, customers can programmatically access instance type specifications using new APIs: DescribeInstanceTypes and DescribeInstanceTypeOfferings. Starting today, these APIs and Console features are available in all commercial Amazon Web Services regions. Read the documentation to learn more.
