I tried using 'EC2Instances.info' which can easily compare the price & specifications of AWS EC2 and RDS

Cloud service instances can be customized in various ways, such as 'general purpose', 'memory specialization', and 'GPU specialization', depending on the application. However, it is also true that there are too many options to compare.

Vantage has released a web service ' EC2Instances.info ' that makes it easy to compare prices and specifications of such instances, so I actually tried using it.

Amazon EC2 Instance Comparison

EC2Instances.info is a service that allows you to weigh instances of Amazon EC2 and Amazon RDS . When I accessed it immediately, the name and memory of the EC2 instance, the number of virtual CPUs (vCPUs) , storage, network performance, and usage charges were displayed. By default, all available instances are displayed, so we will narrow down the conditions from here.

First, select the EC2

region in 'Region'. This time, I chose 'Asia-Pacific (Tokyo)'.

Next, select the usage period when calculating the charge with 'Cost'. This time, the monthly fee is 'Monthly'.

Normally, EC2 instances are 'on-demand instances' that can be terminated at any time, but there are also ' reserved instances ' that can receive significant discounts on the assumption that they will be used for a certain period of time. 'Reserved' is an item that specifies the conditions of the Reserved Instance, and the period (1 year or 3 years), the provided class (standard: standard, convertible: instance type, size, etc. can be changed), payment method (No Upfront: prepayment) None, Partial Upfront: Partial prepayment, Full Upfront: Full prepayment) can be selected. This time, I chose '1-year convertible --No Upfront'.

In 'Columns', you can select the items to be displayed. For example, if you select 'GPU model' ...

The GPU models available for each instance are displayed.

The items that can be displayed on EC2Instances.info are as follows. Since many items can be displayed, detailed comparisons are possible.

・ EBS Optimized surcharge
・ EMR cost

You can also filter instances by memory capacity, number of vCPUs, and storage capacity. You can narrow down the search results with instances that are greater than or equal to the number you entered.

If you want to search by keyword such as instance type, enter the keyword in 'Search'.

If you want to compare multiple instances, click the instance, select it, and then click 'Compare Selected'.

Like this, you can display only the instance you clicked.

If you switch the tab at the top left of the page to 'RDS', you will switch to the RDS instance comparison page.

Since the last update time of the information is displayed in the upper right, you can avoid the situation that 'I have referred to the old information'.
