AWS Elastic Beanstalk now supports dynamic instance type selection for Elastic Beanstalk’s environments. This means Elastic Beanstalk will automatically fetch all EC2 instance types based on region and availability zone for you to run a variety of applications. With dynamic instance type, you can choose the best suited instance type to optimize your application’s performance. For example, if you have machine learning applications, you can optimize performance by selecting an accelerated computing instance type such as p3, or p4d. On the Elastic Beanstalk console, you can navigate to the ‘Capacity’ tab in ‘Configure more options’ to select the instance type.
To determine which instance types meet your requirements, such as supported Regions, see Available instance types in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances or Available instance types in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Windows Instances.
