Some business scenarios have special requirements on GPUs, enhanced network capabilities, high CPU clock speed, and local disks. In such scenarios, Elastic Container Instance (ECI) allows you to create container groups by specifying ECS instance types. The specifications of container groups are the same as those of ECS instances.
In addition, the billing method is the same for a container group and an ECS instance with the same specifications. Both are billed in the pay-as-you-go mode and in seconds.
Currently, the following ECS instance type families are supported:
g5, general-purpose type family
sn2ne, general-purpose type family with enhanced network performance
ic5, intensive compute instance type family
c5, compute instance type family
sn1ne, compute-optimized type family with enhanced network performance
r5, memory instance type family
se1ne, memory-optimized type family with enhanced network performance
gn6v, compute-optimized type family with GPU
gn5i, compute-optimized type family with GPU
t5, burstable instance type family
