You can now use t2.nano Amazon EC2 instances when running applications on AWS Elastic Beanstalk. The t2.nano is recommended for low-traffic website hosting, microservices and developer environments which have low memory needs and don’t need consistently high levels of CPU on average, but benefit significantly from having full access to very fast CPUs when they need them. Starting at only $4.75 per month ($0.0065 per hour), it is the lowest priced EC2 instance.

You can now also deploy Docker application images stored in Amazon EC2 Container Registry (ECR) to Elastic Beanstalk. Amazon ECR is a fully-managed Docker container registry that makes it easy for developers to store, manage, and deploy Docker container images. Amazon ECR eliminates the need to operate your own container repositories or worry about scaling the underlying infrastructure.
