Amazon EC2 announces availability of t2.nano in EU (Frankfurt) and Asia Pacific (Sydney) regions

Posted on: Mar 8, 2016

T2.nano, the smallest and cheapest Amazon EC2 instance type is now available in two new regions: EU (Frankfurt) and Asia Pacific (Sydney). 

The t2.nano is the newest Amazon EC2 burstable-performance instance. The t2.nano features 512 MiB of memory and 1 vCPU, making it well suited for workloads that require a consistent baseline performance with the ability to burst. T2 instances are backed by the latest Intel Xeon processors with clock speeds up to 3.3 GHz. 

The t2.nano is recommended for low-traffic website hosting, micro services 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. As the requirements of your workload grow, you can scale to larger T2 instance sizes or other EC2 instance types. 

T2 instances can be purchased as On-Demand Instances and Reserved Instances. The t2.nano is also available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (San Francisco), EU (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Brazil (Sao Paolo), and GovCloud (US) regions.
