Amazon AppStream 2.0 adds new instance sizes stream.standard.xlarge, and stream.standard.2xlarge to the General Purpose instance family. stream.standard.xlarge offers 4 vCPUs and 16 GiB of memory, and stream.standard.2xlarge offers 8 vCPUs and 32 GiB of memory. These new instances provide higher performance options of compute, memory and networking resources for a diverse set of workloads that require more system resources to run effectively. A few examples include Integrated Development Environments, Web Servers and Code Repositories. The new instance sizes are available across all AppStream fleet types Always-On, On-Demand, and Elastic fleets.

We are also announcing availability of stream.standard.large on AppStream 2.0 Elastic fleets.

With these new additions, AppStream 2.0 offers the following five instance sizes under the General Purpose instance family:

  • stream.standard.small
  • stream.standard.medium
  • stream.standard.large
  • stream.standard.xlarge
  • stream.standard.2xlarge

To use these new instance sizes, create a new AppStream 2.0 fleet or modify your existing fleet by using the AppStream 2.0 console, AWS SDK, or AWS CLI.
