Amazon has announced today the release of the new T2 family instance types: t2.micro, t2.small and t2.medium. These new, economical sizes offer burstable CPU capacity, with an assured baseline amount of processing power and the ability to scale up to a full core when you need more compute power.
We have just released HVM images for WordPress, Drupal and Joomla! so you can start testing this new Amazon EC2 feature. To access them, click the image id in the Ubuntu HVM section to start launching the instance in the AWS console:
You will then be able to select the new instance types in the AWS launch wizard:
We will soon be adding support for the HVM virtualization type for the rest of the Bitnami application library so you can benefit from these new instance types with all of our apps. Enjoy!
