ec2details

This service is the easiest way to get a list of AWS EC2 Instance Types with metadata and prices.

The API

The API currently serves the data in two formats, with each using the same data structure.

In both cases the instance type is the key, with attributes existing under that. Not every instance will have every attribute (as an example, only the p and g families have a gpu field), so it is important to check for both the existence of the field as well as the value.

Pricing is in USD and is broken down by region, operating system (Linux, RHEL, SUSE, or Windows), and tenancy (Dedicated or Shared).

How it's Generated

The data is generated from the EC2 services published in the AWS Bulk API, which is a giant (>2.8G) json file that gets updated anytime there's a change in the EC2 service (new instances, price reductions, additional regions, etc).

Besides being huge, this file is that it is horribly obtuse (requiring custom tools simply to read it). This service uses takes the data in that file and converts it into a simpler data structure.

The data is regenerated four times a day using a scheduled CircleCI job and published using Github pages. During each run the scheduled CircleCI job regenerates the static API files and, if there is a change, pushes those files back up to the master branch of the git repository to update the Github Pages site.

The resulting files are less than 0.1% of the size of the original, and are much easier to parse. Since the files are static and served over the Github CDN they are also quick to download.
