You can create a cluster using either Dense Storage (DS) node types or Dense Compute (DC) node types based on your needs.
Dense Storage (DS) node types are available in two sizes, Extra Large and Eight Extra Large. The Extra Large (XL) has 3 HDDs with a total of 2TB of magnetic storage, whereas Eight Extra Large (8XL) has 24 HDDs with a total of 16TB of magnetic storage. DS2.8XLarge has 36 Intel Xeon E5-2676 v3 (Haswell) virtual cores and 244GiB of RAM, and DS2.XL has 4 Intel Xeon E5-2676 v3 (Haswell) virtual cores and 31GiB of RAM. Please see our pricing page for more detail. You can get started with a single Extra Large node, 2TB data warehouse for $0.85 per hour and scale up to a petabyte or more. You can pay by the hour or use reserved instance pricing to lower your price to under $1,000 per TB per year.
Dense Compute (DC) node types are also available in two sizes. The Large has 160GB of SSD storage, 2 Intel Xeon E5-2670v2 (Ivy Bridge) virtual cores and 15GiB of RAM. The Eight Extra Large is sixteen times bigger with 2.56TB of SSD storage, 32 Intel Xeon E5-2670v2 virtual cores and 244GiB of RAM. You can get started with a single DC2.Large node for $0.25 per hour and scale all the way up to 128 8XL nodes with 326TB of SSD storage, 3,200 virtual cores and 24TiB of RAM.
