Can an reserved instance for m6i be used for an m6id

0

My gut feeling is no, but I have not found specific documentation that lays out the case precisely. Than you.

No, but if you have convertible RI you can easily convert m6i to m6id.

No, a reserved instance for an m6i instance type cannot be used for an m6id instance type. The instance types are different, and AWS Reserved Instances (RIs) are specific to particular instance types and sizes.

If you have an m6i reserved instance, it will only apply to instances launched with the m6i instance type and the specific size (e.g., m6i.large) that matches the attributes of the reserved instance. It cannot be applied to instances of a different type, such as m6id.

  • If the Reserved Instance is Convertible (CRI), an exchange can be performed between the two types to ensure the commitment matches the usage, so long as the new commitment is equal or greater in value.
