You can now launch the next generation general-purpose burstable T3-Standard cache nodes in Amazon ElastiCache. Amazon EC2’s T3-Standard instances provide a baseline level of CPU performance with the ability to burst CPU usage at any time till the accrued credits are exhausted. They offer generational advances in CPU performance that enable a higher overall baseline performance threshold over T2 cache nodes.
ElastiCache T3-Standard cache nodes accumulate CPU credits when the workload is operating below baseline threshold. Each earned CPU credit provides the cache node the opportunity to burst with the performance of a full CPU core till the accrued credits are exhausted. ElastiCache T3-Standard cache nodes are suitable for entry-level, small and medium cache workloads that may also experience temporary spikes in use.
