Amazon EC2 instances and comparison

Amazon is the market leader in cloud solution and it offers customers a wide range of EC2 instances.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is one of the most widely used services of AWS. This service is used to create and use virtual machines as service.

Most of the time when we require a virtual machine we just for T2 instance type which is meant for the general purpose. But AWS also provides a wide range of EC2 instance types which are meant for specific reasons.

General Purpose instances T2 M5 M4
Compute Optimized C5 C4
Memory Optimized X1e X1 R4
Accelerated Computing P3 P2 G3 F1
Storage Optimized H1 I3 D2

T2

Use Case: Websites and web applications, development environments, build servers, code repositories, microservices, test and staging environments, and line of business applications.

M5

Use Case: Small and mid-size databases, data processing tasks that require additional memory, caching fleets, and for running backend servers for SAP, Microsoft SharePoint, cluster computing, and other enterprise applications.

M4

Use Case: Small and mid-size databases, data processing tasks that require additional memory, caching fleets, and for running backend servers for SAP, Microsoft SharePoint, cluster computing, and other enterprise applications.

C5

Use Case: High-Performance web servers, scientific modeling, batch processing, distributed analytics, high-performance computing (HPC), machine/deep learning inference, ad serving, highly scalable multiplayer gaming, and video encoding.
