AWS Releases New EC2 T3 Instances

AWS Releases New EC2 T3 Instances

AWS is proud to announce the release of new AWS EC2 T3 instances. These instances all have custom 2.5 GHz Intel Xeon Scalable Processors with Intel AVX-512 instructions. These make the new instances excellent for workloads that don’t need sustained compute power, as they can still provide high performance when necessary through unlimited bursting.

The T3 Instances come in seven sizes:

Name vCPUs Baseline Performance/ vCPUs Memory Price/Hour (Linux) Price/Hour (Windows)
t3.nano 2 5% 0.5 Gig $0.0052 $0.0098
t3.micro 2 10% 1 GiB $0.0104 $0.0196
t3.small 2 20% 2 GiB $0.0209 $0.0393
t3.medium 2 20% 4 GiB $0.0418 $0.0602
t3.large 2 30% 8 GiB $0.0835 $0.1111
t3.xlarge 4 40% 16 GiB $0.1670 $0.2406
t3.2xlarge 8 40% 32 GiB $0.3341 $0.4813

*Shows the performance of a single hyperthread’s processing power that is provided to the instance.

While idle, instances will gain credits, which they use while running. Credits accumulated are saved for 7 days. Note that if within 24 hours the average CPU utilization of a T3 instance is lower than the baseline, the per hour price will cover all spikes in usage. In the event the instance runs at higher CPU utilization for a long time, an additional charge of $0.05 per vCPU hour will be levied. This lets you choose the T3 instance that fits your memory and vCPUs requirements, then let the bursting to provide the necessary CPU cycles.

The new instances are now available for use in the following regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Frankfurt), South America (São Paulo), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Singapore), and Asia Pacific (Sydney).
