InstanceClass

class aws_cdk.aws_ec2.InstanceClass(value)

Bases: Enum

What class and generation of instance to use.

We have both symbolic and concrete enums for every type.

The first are for people that want to specify by purpose, the second one are for people who already know exactly what ‘R4’ means.
