Instance Type: T4g

This plan belongs to the Amazon EC2 T4g server line (General purpose).

Instance Type Description

Amazon EC2 T4g instances are powered by Arm-based custom built AWS Graviton2 processors and deliver up to 40% better price performance over T3 instances for a broad set of burstable general purpose workloads.

T4g instances accumulate CPU credits when a workload is operating below baseline threshold. Each earned CPU credit provides the T4g instance the opportunity to burst with the performance of a full CPU core for one minute when needed. T4g instances can burst at any time for as long as required in Unlimited mode.
