The EC2 Recommendations page shows recommended EC2 instances for each on-premises server. The recommendations include right-sizing based on utilization data imported (or assumed) and payment option based on uptime (server usage %; may be assumed based on environment if imported).
EC2 Recommendationsunder TCO → AWS. There are three types of recommendations:
Peak utilization-based can sometime have outliers, so if possible, use 95th percentile utilization data for peak utilization.
Scroll down to the Details Section, Override the Amazon EC2 recommendations on this page by using the bulk edit functionality. We would like to change Peak utilization of
t3a.medium to ensure enough capacity is planned.
Override EC2 Recommendationat the bottom of the page.
Peak Utilization: = t3a.nano
