In some scenarios, you may have specific specification requirements such as for GPUs, enhanced network capabilities, high clock speeds, and local disks. To meet these requirements, you can create an elastic container instance by specifying an Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance type.
When you specify an ECS instance type to create an elastic container instance, the compute resources consumed by the elastic container instance are billed at the rate of the specified ECS instance type.
The following ECS instance families are supported:
General purpose instance families: g6e, g6, g5, sn2, and sn2ne
Compute optimized instance families: c6e, c6a, c6, c5, sn1, and sn1ne
Memory optimized instance families: r6e, r6, r5, se1ne, and se1
Compute intensive instance family: ic5
Compute optimized instance families with high clock speeds: hfc6 and hfc5
General purpose instance families with high clock speeds: hfg6 and hfg5
GPU-accelerated compute optimized instance families: gn6i, gn6v, gn5i, and gn5
Big data instance family with enhanced network performance: d1ne
Instance families with local SSDs: i2 and i2g
Burstable instance families: t6 and t5
Shared instance families: s6, xn4, n4, mn4, n1, n2, e3, and e4

You can add annotations to metadata in the configuration file of the pod to specify an ECS instance type. Sample code:
apiVersion: apps/v1 # for versions before 1.8.0 use apps/v1beta1 kind: Deployment metadata: name: nginx-deployment-basic labels: app: nginx spec: replicas: 2 selector: matchLabels: app: nginx template: metadata: labels: app: nginx annotations: k8s.aliyun.com/eci-use-specs: ecs.c5.large #Specify an ECS instance type. spec: containers: - name: nginx image: nginx:1.7.9 # replace it with your exactly <image_name:tags> ports: - containerPort: 80 nodeName: virtual-kubelet #Specify a virtual node name to schedule the pod to Elastic Container Instance in a Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) cluster.
When you call the CreateContainerGroup operation to create an elastic container instance, you can use the InstanceType parameter to specify one or more ECS instance types. The following table describes the parameter. For more information, see CreateContainerGroup.
The ECS instance types. You can specify up to five ECS instance types at a time. Separate multiple instance types with commas (,). Example: ecs.c5.xlarge,ecs.g5.xlarge.
