This topic describes the general-purpose instance type families g5 and sn2ne, and lists specific instance types.

g5, general-purpose type family

Features

  • I/O-optimized
  • Supports SSD Cloud Disks and Ultra Disks
  • Equipped with a vCPU to memory ratio of 1:4
  • Ultra high packet forwarding rate
  • Equipped with 2.5 GHz Intel Xeon Platinum 8163 (Skylake) processors
  • Supports strong network performance through sufficient computing capacity
  • Suitable for the following scenarios:
    • Scenarios where a large volume of packets are received and transmitted, such as the re-transmission of telecommunication information
    • Enterprise-level applications of various types and sizes
    • Medium and small database systems, cache, and search clusters
    • Data analysis and computing
    • Computing clusters and data processing reliant on memory
