Note
  • You can go to the ECS Instance Types Available for Each Region page to view the instance types available in each region.
  • For more information about these specifications, see Description of instance specifications.
  • The results for network capabilities are the maximum values obtained from single item tests. For example, when network bandwidth is tested, no stress tests are performed on the packet forwarding rate or other network metrics.
