AWS re:Invent 2018: Amazon EC2 T Instances – Burstable, Cost-Effective Performance (CMP209)

Published on Nov 27, 2018

In this session, you will learn how to utilize low cost T2 and T3 instances while still having access to sustainable high performance when needed. Designed for applications with variable CPU usage that experience occasional spikes in demand, T instances enable customers’ applications to burst seamlessly to meet temporary traffic peaks and then scale back down to operate at typical traffic levels. The next generation T3 instances provide up to 30% better price performance over T2 instances and include unlimited bursting by default, making it a cost-effective choice for general-purpose computing.
