We are excited to bring you two features you have been asking us for this year to modernize your game servers – support for C5, M5, and R5 instance types as well as adding Amazon Linux 2 as an option for the operating system. With the 5 series instance types, you will get improved performance over the 3 series and 4 series hardware, and in many cases, that improved performance comes with a lower cost. Amazon Linux 2 will help modernize your Linux environment as it comes with many of the latest innovations in the Linux ecosystem. Check out the links below to learn all about the advantages of both Amazon GameLift updates today!
