Today, Amazon AppStream 2.0 adds a new instance size to the General Purpose instance family. This new instance size, stream.standard.small, offers 1 vCPU and 2 GiB of memory. It is ideally suited for streaming lightweight, non-graphics applications such as browsers for secure web browsing and bastion host administration tools, and applications that are not resource intensive. To use the new instance size, create a new AppStream 2.0 fleet or modify your existing fleet by using the AppStream 2.0 console, AWS SDK, or AWS CLI.  

With this addition, AppStream 2.0 offers the following three instance sizes under the General Purpose instance family:

  • stream.standard.small
  • stream.standard.medium
  • stream.standard.large

For more information about the instance types offered by AppStream 2.0, see AppStream 2.0 Pricing. If you are new to AppStream 2.0, see the AppStream 2.0 website. You can also try the AppStream 2.0 streaming experience by visiting Try sample applications on Amazon AppStream 2.0.
