This topic describes specific compute instance type families, and lists the specific instance types within each of the instance type families. Specifically, the instance type families to be described are: compute-intensive instance type family ic5, compute-optimized instance type family with enhanced network performance sn1ne, and compute instance type family c5.

ic5, intensive compute instance type family

Features

  • I/O-optimized
  • Supports SSD Cloud Disks and Ultra Disks
  • Equipped with a vCPU to memory ratio of 1:1
  • 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:
    • Web front-end servers
    • Data analysis, batch compute, and video coding
    • Scenarios where a large volume of packets are received and transmitted, such as the re-transmission of telecommunication information
    • Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game frontends
