Choosing the right instance for your workload is critical to ensuring your application's availability, scalability, and efficiency. Amazon Web Services ( AWS) offers several types of EC2 , suitable for different sizes and purposes. But how to choose the best EC2 for your application? You need to know a little more about the subject to be able to choose more assertively.
EC2 instances are the best choice as they offer a balanced profile of compute, memory, and network resources.
EC2 instance type is ideal for companies that need high-performance processors at the lowest possible price. They are recommended, for example, for MMO games, batch processing, distributed analysis and high traffic sites.
EC2 instance types are designed for graphically intensive workloads. They are capable of hosting high-performance databases and large-scale machine learning
EC2 instances designed to store and process data. I3 and D1 instances offer low-cost storage.
One of the main concerns of those thinking about migrating to the cloud is the cost of EC2 . Amazon Web Services ( AWS) offers some alternatives depending on the needs of your applications:
On-Demand Instances are purchased at a flat rate per hour and are recommended for applications with short-term irregular workloads that cannot be stopped. They are also suitable for use when testing and developing applications on EC2.
They tend to be cheaper than On-Demand Instances, but you have to pay for the full year of usage. It's a downside for those who don't need to use the instance often.
It guarantees the availability of on-demand applications with discounts of up to 90%. The downside of SPOT instances is that they can be terminated by Amazon Web Service (AWS) at any time with a two-minute warning.
