EC2 Get InstanceType Count

Amazon Web Services (AWS)’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is a commercial web service that allows users to rent virtual computers. Using AWS EC2’s cloud infrastructure, you can build powerful servers in the cloud. This service completely eliminates the need to set up and invest in hardware, enabling you to deploy your apps quickly. With AWS EC2, you can set up servers, configure networking and security, and manage storage.

An instance is nothing but a virtual machine. AWS offers a variety of instance types, which are various combinations of CPU, storage, memory, networking capacity, and so on.  

Using this action, you can get the count of the various instance types available in a particular region.

To do this, you first need to configure the action, and select the required AWS connection.

Next, select the region of which you wish to get the InstanceType count.

That’s it. Click on ‘Done’ and run the workflow. This will return the count of the InstanceType in a particular region.
