WhichInstance.com updated for new M3 instances

Amazon regularly adds new types of EC2 instances to keep up with demand and reflect the capabilities of the underlying hardware.  This week they announced medium & large instances in the M3 class.  Like the other M3 instances, these VMs are backed by Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge processors and SSD instance storage; more details on Amazon’s instance types page.

Last year we created a tool to make comparing the price of EC2 instances easier.  With the advent of these new instance types, we’ve updated WhichInstance.com to reflect the new options, improving the interface a bit in the process.  Give WhicInstance a look to more easily understand the costs of running an instance over time, and remember that Amazon reserved instances can save you a lot of money!
