Specify specifications for container groups (same as ECS)

Last Updated: Aug 15, 2019

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
