Do you want fries with your EC2 instance?

Amazon has beefed up its EC2 product and is now offering “large” and “extra large”  EC2 instances.

Both of the new instance types support 64-bit computing. While the Large Instance type offers 7.5 GB RAM, the Extra Large Instance Type offers 15 GB RAM (compared to the Small instance type and its 1.7 GB RAM). To help developer compare the new instance types, we are measuring the CPU capacity using a new term called an EC2 Compute Unit. The EC2 home page has more information about this.

Good news if your requirements are growing (and ours will be).
