Tag: m instances


We thought that comparing CoreMark and FIO benchmark results for different instance families would be interesting. Essentially, it gives a good idea, and may help you decide, on which instance type you should use. To start, the numbers shown below are from benchmarking experiments which are explained ...

In previous posts we talked about micro-benchmarks that we ran for storage-optimized instances. Here we’ll talk about the same benchmarks run on general-purpose m1 and m3 instances. While the m1 is a previous-generation general-purpose instance type, the m3 is the current-generation version. One major difference between the ... Read More
