Ec2 provides the users with instances of different CPU capacity and in order to compare between two CPU capacities, an EC2 compute unit is defined.EC2 Compute units specify the number of CPU units allocated to a particular instance.

Amazon uses a variety of measures to provide each instance with a predictable and consistent amount of memory.
