|Size||Logical Cores||CPU Weight||I/O Priority||Network||TPS|
Storage Price: $0.75/GB/month
CPU Weight: Higher is better, with the instance receiving more time on the CPU on the basis of its weight under high load.
Network: Allocated network throughput.
TPS (Transactions per second): Benchmark (June 2014) in transactions per second using 64 MySQL threads for all flavors, except 32 threads for 512MB.
*Your mileage may vary. A benchmark is only a guideline and not representative of the performance your application will see. Always benchmark your own application.
