New – Attribute-Based Instance Type Selection for EC2 Auto Scaling and EC2 Fleet

The first AWS service I used, more than ten years ago, was Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). Over time, EC2 has added a wide selection of instance types optimized to fit different use cases, with a varying combination of CPU/GPU, memory, storage, and networking capacity to give you the flexibility to choose the appropriate […]

Capacity-Optimized Spot Instance Allocation in Action at Mobileye and Skyscanner

Amazon EC2 Spot Instances were launched way back in 2009. The instances are spare EC2 compute capacity that is available at savings of up to 90% when compared to the On-Demand prices. Spot Instances can be interrupted by EC2 (with a two minute heads-up), but are otherwise the same as On-Demand instances. You can use […]

New – Provisioned Concurrency for Lambda Functions

When I look back on the history of AWS and think about the launches that truly signify the fundamentally dynamic, on-demand nature of the cloud, two stand […]

New – Instance Protection for Auto Scaling

You can use Auto Scaling to scale a collection of EC2 instances up and down based on a set of conditions that you define. Scaling out helps you to maintain the desired level of performance as demand for processing power increases; scaling in reduces costs during quiet periods. Today we are giving you additional control […]
