AWS Compute Optimizer now helps customers understand impact of migrating to Graviton2-based instances by recommending up to 3 Graviton2-based instance type options for x86-based Linux instances.

Starting today, customers can specify the EC2 instance architecture they would like to target. When customers specify Arm as the preferred architecture, Compute Optimizer recommends up to 3 Graviton2-based instance types for each x86-based Linux instance (excluding Linux with SQL Server instances). Compute Optimizer delivers projected price and hardware resource utilization so that customers can easily visualize price and performance differences if they migrate to the recommended Graviton2-based instance types. Customers can also export all EC2 recommendations with Graviton2-based instance type options as CSV files to Amazon S3 buckets.
