    obviously amazon has this all fully documented already, but for a quick visual reference, this may be helpful when picking instances:

    @Agrul yeah - that tends to be my go-to as well. The thing that was useful for me in the ec2types.io display was the handy clustering of the types (compute vs. mem optimized for example) and the indications of which instances are on older tech vs. the latest tech. I know that's all basically encoded in the names themselves, but I like pictures b-cause I'm basically a toddler.
